FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — When the Razorbacks take the field against MIZZOU this Friday (Nov. 27), they’re fighting for more than just bragging rights.

The silver, 180-pound Battle Line Rivalry trophy was unveiled on Monday (Nov. 23), according to a press release. The trophy stands a little higher than four feet and shows the outline of Arkansas and Missouri.

The second annual contest kicks off Friday (Nov. 27) at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, the release states.  The game is set for a nationally televised broadcast at 1:30 p.m. on CBS.

A former Razorback football student-athlete, David Bazzel, designed the Battle Line Trophy, according to the release. Bazzel also created The Golden Boot, the annual trophy given to the winner of the Arkansas-LSU football series, which was previously held on Thanksgiving weekend.

The trophy was constructed primarily by Supreme Fixture and Sissy’s Log Cabin of Little Rock.
