Good God. These schools should be embarrassed to be playing for such trophies.
The Little Brown Jug has a history that's epic, not only for the reason it was bought but because it was part of an actual Michigan/Minnesota game 110 years ago.
And so began the rest of the college football world inventing trophies that really have nothing to do with their history. You grab the first animal, appliance or fairy tale character that comes to mind, put it on top of a plaque, and then tell two random schools to play for it every years.
ETA: Never knew Notre Dame and Stanford played for a punch bowl.
