The $5 Bits of Wooden Chair trophy was created following a November 20, 2014 Twitter exchange between "Goldy Gopher", the mascot of the Minnesota team, and "Fake Bo Pelini", a backer of the Nebraska team. "Goldy" suggested a friendly wager on the outcome of the November 22, 2014 contest between the two teams. "Fake Bo Pelini" responded: "OK how about if we win you give me $5, if you win I get to smash a wooden chair over your back". "Goldy" shot back, "just as long as we can turn that $5 or bits of broken chair into a trophy for next year's game". Fans of the Gophers created the trophy, which the Gophers then retained by beating the Cornhuskers 28-24 in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Nebraska victories are shaded ██ cream. Minnesota victories are shaded ██ maroon. Ties are white.
