Purdue Vs. Indiana

For more than a century, two titans of Indiana intercollegiate sports have squared off. As the Purdue-Indiana rivalry flourished and the stakes outgrew mere bragging rights, traveling trophies emerged. The Old Oaken Bucket is at stake each fall on the gridiron. In women's basketball, the Barn Burner Trophy is on the line on the hardwood. And in volleyball, the Monon Spike, named for the railroad that once carried fans to the big games, is in play. In men's basketball, bragging rights are sufficient.

Now, when the Boilermakers and Hoosiers tangle, the stakes are higher still. The Crimson & Gold Cup, which debuted in 2001-02, takes the storied rivalry to epic heights, with Olympic sports and revenue sports each carrying a point to the winner. At the end of the academic year, the points are tallied and the winner is awarded the Crimson & Gold Cup.

For ties, each team gets one-half point. If the two teams do not meet during the regular season, the higher finisher in the Big Ten championships is the Crimson & Gold Cup sport winner.

True to the fierce rivalry, both schools have claimed titles in the last four years (Purdue in 2006-07 and Indiana in 2008-09), with the other two years winding up in a tie.
