Nebraska beats Minnesota, claims college football's best rivalry trophy

The Internet made up a rivalry trophy for the Huskers and Gophers, and now both teams actually want it.

Forget any other trophy in the Big Ten. Nebraska and Minnesota's $5 Bits of Broken Chair Trophy beats them all.

Devised just last season thanks to the Internet, the trophy changed hands for the first time this season as the Cornhuskers defeated the Gophers, 48-25.

To make things even weirder, the ceremonial exchange was made by the respective mascots. Now, Nebraska can take the trophy back home. But they better be careful; five dollars and bits of broken chair are hard to come by.
