    If you read the stuff on the Husker website, you will see why they came up with the name. They will create a new trophy for that game as well.

    Big 10 sucks at spelling.

    Does the trophy look like this?

    Soo Wee, not Souv Wee. Although, personally, I prefer the latter.

    In the Big 10's defense both "James Westfall" and "Dr. Kenneth Noisewater" were names that were already spoken for. Helluva trophy though.

    Rocky Mountain Showdown sounds pretty good...oh wait. I dunno what about something about the Great Divide.

    I prefer to name it after something a little more conceptual and pretentious.

    Nuclear Fusion Game, maybe?

    It would make sense to switch the name over to CU-UU, I mean.. the rammies don't even showup.

    The corn wheat bowl? Why not call it the Beer Brewer's matchup? The B10's naming policies are only slightly better than the "Let's Go Rammin" crap csewe came up with....
