The Spring 2013 Intramural Football season saw 6 teams (3 student and 3 staff/faculty) compete in a Competitive level 10 game season. Defending champions Team Black finished atop the regular season standings at 9 - 1. Staff Green received the other first-round playoff bye going 8 - 2.
The play-offs saw the late-charging Team Red (winners of their last 4 matches) dominate their quarterfinal match only to lose to Staff Green on sudden-death penalties in the semifinals.
In the other semi-final Team Black dispatched Team Yellow handily.
The final was a close encounter until a 3 goal flurry in four minutes midway through the second half by Team Black put the championship out of reach as they defeated Staff Green 12 - 8.
After a season which saw 14 women and 19 men compete over 12 weeks, Championship night culminated with four of the five finals tightly contested, including three matches requiring extra points to decide the champion.
