Have any of you ever actually seen the Shillelagh Trophy, which since 1957 has been the prize given to the winner of the annual Purdue-Notre Dame football game?
Most of us know what the Old Oaken Bucket looks like. The Shillelagh not so much.
The Irish have kept the Shillelagh in South Bend on 37 occasions compared to the 19 times it spent the year in West Lafayette. The trophy hasn’t been in Purdue’s possession since after the Boilermakers’ 33-19 triumph in 2007.
