The Keg of Nails

The Keg of Nails is a traveling trophy in college football, which has been awarded to the winner of the Louisville-Cincinnati game since 1929. The rivalry has spanned three conferences - the Missouri Valley, Conference USA and the BIG EAST. It is a replica of a keg that was used to ship nails. The keg is adorned with logos of both schools and the scores of the games.
