Illbuck

One of the lesser-known rivalries for Ohio State is the one involving the University of Illinois, and the Illibuck turtle. The Illibuck Trophy is a wooden turtle with the scores of the Ohio State-Illinois matchups etched into its shell, but was initially a live turtle when the rivalry started in 1925. This is no longer an annual matchup due to divisional format, but when it does happen, it is a must see game.
