Wisconsin and Nebraska, Big Ten football rivals, now have a trophy to celebrate their rivalry.
The Freedom Trophy will be on the line for the first time on Saturday, Nov. 15, when the Badgers host the Cornhuskers at Camp Randall Stadium.
The Freedom Trophy features a bronze football stadium with an American flag extending from the center. One half of the outside of the stadium depicts the North section of Wisconsin's Camp Randall Stadium (built in 1917) and the other half the East side of Nebraska's Memorial Stadium (1923). The two teams are now divisional rivals in the Big Ten West.
