It’s Thursday and I’m already planning my Saturday football-viewing activities. That can only mean that the Megaphone Trophy is about to make an appearance! The Michigan State Spartans/Notre Dame Fighting Irish rivalry goes back to 1897, but The Megaphone Trophy was introduced in 1949. Half of the megaphone is painted blue with an ND monogram and the other side is white with a green MSU. The current trophy is the third one in use since it has run out of room for scores twice before.
We love football trophy stories here at Dinn Trophy. Someone should give me a trophy for watching football! I’ll let you know how that works out for me…

When is a milk can not a milk can? When it is the Milk Can Trophy up for grabs in the football rivalry between Boise State Broncos and Fresno State Bulldogs! According to Wikipedia: “The idea for a trophy as the prize for the newly arranged interstate rivalry was hatched by two separate dairy groups that decided to get involved with their local football programs. California (No. 1) and Idaho (No. 4) are two of the nation's leading dairy producers. The South Valley Dairy Group began raising money for Bulldog football in 2001; the Bronco Dairy Boosters began contributing to Boise State in 2005. Two dairymen and friends in these organizations, Dan Van Grouw of Meridian, Idaho (in the Boise metropolitan area) and Roger Fluegel of Visalia, California (in Fresno State's home of the San Joaquin Valley), put forward the idea of a traveling trophy and began the administrative process. There was positive feedback from the teams, coaches, and fans, but an "administrative changeover" kept the trophy off the field for the 2005 game, though the Bulldogs' 27–7 victory is the first listed on the can.”
Be sure to catch the game this Friday 9/20/103) on ESPN!
While you may never see your name engraved on the Milk Can Trophy, we would be happy to personalize one of our own Dinn Trophy football trophies just for you and your team!
