PHOTO: Utah State, Wyoming have the greatest rivalry trophy ever

The "Bridger's Battle" is a new rivalry game between Wyoming and Utah State. The winner will get a .50 caliber rifle.

Saturday's game between Wyoming and Utah State has huge implications for the Aggies because of they win they will be in the Mountain West title game against Fresno State.

However, the stakes increased exponentially as this game is now being called Bridger's Battle, named after 19th-century explorer Jim Bridger (read up kids), with the winner getting a rifle. Yes, that is correct, the winner gets a .50 caliber rifle, and thanks to Paul Myerberg for a picture.

This hands down has to be the best item up for grabs in a rivalry game, it might even better then the Fremont Cannon that is given to the winner of the Nevada and UNLV game. Actually thinking about it, the canon is better.

The final question is if the rifle is in working condition.
