The Kit Carson Rifle was apparently retired as a trophy back in 1997. Here's a link:

i knew they retired the rifle, but i though that was because they had ended the rivalry games due to scheduling difficulties.

The NCAA effed this up by

a) allowing 5-7 Nebraska, Minnesota, and San Jose State to go bowling to keep a bunch of lower-level bowl games from being played

and

b) allowing said 5-7 teams to be picked AHEAD OF teams with better records. They should've been picked dead last after all the other teams were chosen regardless of conference tie-ins.

Ugh, I heard Utah is going to Vegas for the boel game. ESPN and others think we're nuts there is such a rivalry with BYU. The Royal Purple Bowl - - I think Vegas pulled strings. BYU accepted Mid-week. UT deserved better. That's when ESPN did too much time focused on the tweets between the two schools and started to lobby for it. Vegas loves these two teams as Vegas sells out their games. Oh well, it's the last time we should have to see Bronco Mendenhall before he runs to UVA.

Where are your teams going and how do you feel about it?
