$5 Bits of Broken Chair

Rival Team: Minnesota Gophers

These two teams have consistently played each other for many years, but the advent of the $5 Bits of Broken Chair Trophy has given the age-old rivalry a new and exciting twist. This unique trophy came about from a back-and-forth banter between Minnesota mascot Goldy Gopher and a parody account for former Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini (“Faux Pelini”) on Twitter. User Faux Pelini suggested a friendly wager in which if Nebraska won, Goldy would owe him $5, and if Minnesota wins, Faux Belini will get to smash a chair over Goldy’s back. The comical wager resulted in many Twitter users designing a trophy for the occasion, but Goldy himself ended up doing so, and it was first awarded during the 2014 season
