A lot of rivalries have a trophy as a prize for winning each year. And there are some that should have a trophy but do not have one now. I have ideas for new trophies that could make several rivalries more fun.

Colorado VS. Utah - Rumble in the Rockies
Since both states are big on skiing, a pair of skis should be the trophy.

Pac-12 California Schools
The Pac-12 team in California that has the best record against its in-state rivals should be awarded a trophy. I think a golden serpentine rock should be the trophy. I'd also like to see trophies for the regional champs in the Northwest (the Oregon and Washington schools) and the Interior West (the Arizona and Rocky Mountain schools).

California schools in the MW
Starting in 2013, the MW will have all the FBS schools that are part of the Cal State system. I think there should be a trophy for the team that sweeps its in-state rivals each year, maybe a big outline of the state of California? The Fresno-San Jose and San Diego-San Jose rivalries can also have their own trophies (the former can be a solid gold bunch of grapes).

UCF VS. South Florida
This game should have an I-4 shield as its trophy.

The possibilities are endless. What rivalry games do you think should have trophies?

Only the ones that currently have trophies. They've forced trophies upon some rivalries. Take UW vs Iowa for example. For some reason they decided to bestow a trophy on that game a few years ago. It was already a huge rivalry that they decided to put a trophy on relatively recently. I love beating Iowa but I'm more excited about winning Paul Bunyan's Axe because of the tradition.

My point is you don't need a trophy to make a rivalry legitimate and awesome.

The Land-Grant trophy was a forced disaster. Penn State and MSU never developed any kind of real rivalry.

There is no greater trophy



Than the land grant trophy.
