The Little Brown Jug is an earthenware jug that serves as a trophy awarded to the winner of the Michigan–Minnesota football game. The game is one of the oldest and most played rivalries in American college football, dating to 1892. The Little Brown Jug is the most regularly exchanged rivalry trophy in college football, the oldest trophy game in FBS college football, and the second oldest rivalry trophy overall, next to the 1899 Territorial Cup, contested between Arizona and Arizona State (which did not become a four-year college until 1925). Join Jon M. Stevens and Ken Magee, co-authors of the book, “The Little Brown Jug: The Michigan-Minnesota Football Rivalry”, as they discuss Michigan Football and the historical battle for the Jug! Registration at the Adult Service desk or call the library at 734-426-4477.
