The Steven Dean Memorial Trophy is a college football trophy that goes to the winner of the Catholic University of America and Georgetown University football game. The trophy was introduced in 1976 and is named after former Georgetown University team manager and Catholic University sports information director Steven Dean, afflicted with cerebral palsy.

Catholic and Georgetown had already met for 8 seasons (1966, 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1973 and 1974) before the trophy introduction, and the rivalry was becoming the nation's capital own Holy War.

Catholic won the first trophy game 41–35 at Brookland Stadium and went on to win 9. Georgetown has also won the trophy nine times, leaving the series 9–9. The 1984 game is in dispute between the schools. Catholic won the game 56–6; while Catholic counts it as a win in the series, Georgetown lists the game as a Catholic forfeit over an ineligible player.

After three straight Georgetown wins, the last game so far was played in 1993, with Georgetown moving to Division I and Catholic still competing in Division III.
