Goat Trophy (football)
The Goat Trophy is a wooden trophy (made by a St. Olaf custodian) which is the prize for the winner of the Carleton - St. Olaf football game every year in the Cereal Bowl. The tradition stems from an earlier tradition in basketball (see Goat Trophy (basketball)). The trophy was donated to the two schools in 1931 to go to the victor of the annual football game and was originally nicknamed "Goatrophy."
The first contest was won by St. Olaf, but Carleton gained the trophy the following year. Recently, Carleton regained the trophy in 2008 for the first time since 1996, and won it again in 2009.
A secondary prize for winning the Carleton - St. Olaf football game is the right to turn the eagle atop Bridge Square's Civil War Monument to face the campus of the winning college.
