The Chrysler Corporation Dodge Tomahawk

Tomahawk: The student newspapers at Northwestern and Illinois birthed the idea of the two football teams playing for a wooden Indian trophy in 1945.  The name of the trophy was "Sweet Sioux."  The following year, the trophy was stolen from a showcase at Northwestern.  So, in 1947, a tomahawk was instituted as the traveling trophy.  Incidentally, Sweet Sioux was found in 1948 but because of its size, it was discarded and the teams continue to play for the tomahawk to this day.
