Arkansas coach Bret Bielema had a great description of the trophy Arkansas and LSU will be playing for on Saturday.
The rivalry trophy is called “The Golden Boot” and is a replica of how Arkansas and Louisiana look on a map. So Arkansas is on top of Louisiana. It looks like this (though the view is from the back side):
And according to Bielema, it looks like this:
“It kind of looks like a bad neck chain from the 80s,” Bielema said Wednesday. “It’s one of those things where it’s a little gaudy, gold-plated, but it’s big and speaks volumes about the pride between these two states.”
The trophy was introduced in 1996 and LSU has won 12 of the annual games since the trophy’s introduction. Overall, the Tigers lead the series 37-22-2, though Arkansas has won the last two games in the series. And both wins have been by 17 points.
