Die Rivalität kann in verschiedene Epochen unterteilt werden, wobei die ersten beiden die glorreichen Tage von Minnesota sind, gefolgt von Nebraskas Aufstieg zur Bekanntheit. Diese Match-Ups fanden statt, als die Schulen nicht auf Konferenzen konkurrierten und sich von 1900 bis 1974 halbregelmäßig gegenüberstanden, dann bis 1990 in unregelmäßigen Abständen. Die Ära der Big Ten begann 2011, als Nebraska in die Konferenz und spielte in der Legends Division (jetzt die West Division) mit Minnesota. Die Trophäen-Ära begann 2014 mit der Schaffung der $5 Bits of Broken Chair Trophy.
Minnesota führt die Serie 34-25-2 an; von 1900 bis 1960 gingen sie 29-6-2 gegen Nebraska. Minnesota gab Nebraska mit einem 61-7-Sieg 1945 die schlimmste Heimniederlage aller Zeiten. Seit 1960 hat Nebraska jedoch 19-6 gegen Minnesota gewonnen und von 1963 bis 2012 16 Spiele in Folge mit einer durchschnittlichen Siegmarge von über 30 Punkten gewonnen.
Am 17. September 1983 reiste No. 1 Nebraska nach einem 44-7-Wochen-Eins-Sieg gegen No. 4 Penn State nach Minneapolis. Nebraska hat auf dem Weg zu einem 84-13-Sieg gegen die Gophers, dem schlimmsten Verlust in der Geschichte von Minnesota, 790 Yards an Offense gesammelt, von denen fast 600 eilten. Nebraska Wide Receiver Irving Fryar , der im NFL Draft 1984 der Top-Pick sein würde , schaffte 230 Yards Offensive bei fünf Berührungen (drei Carrys für 92 Yards; zwei Empfänge für 138 Yards). Der zukünftige Gewinner der Heisman Trophy, Mike Rozier, trug 15 Mal für 196 Yards und drei Touchdowns. Die gesamte 60-Mann-Reiseliste von Nebraska war vor dem Ende des dritten Viertels in das Spiel eingetreten.
Die Cornhuskers stellten den NCAA-Scoring-Rekord aller Zeiten auf, während die Gophers ihre letzten zehn Spiele verloren und 1-10 beendeten.
$ 5 Stück Broken Chair Trophy
Der Ursprung der $5 Bits of Broken Chair Trophy liegt im Geplänkel im November 2014 zwischen den Twitter- Konten des Minnesota-Maskottchens Goldy Gopher und „Faux Pelini“, einem Parodie-Account des damaligen Nebraska-Cheftrainers Bo Pelini . Goldy schlug mit diesem Tweet eine Wette auf das Spiel vor: „Hey @FauxPelini, wie wäre es mit einer Freundschaftswette für das Spiel an diesem Wochenende? Das Team, das die meisten Punkte bekommt, bekommt einen Konferenzsieg? Faux Pelini antwortete: "OK, wie wäre es, wenn wir [Nebraska] gewinnen, geben Sie mir 5 US-Dollar, wenn Sie [Minnesota] gewinnen, kann ich einen Holzstuhl über Ihren Rücken zerschlagen". Dies veranlasste Goldy, mit dem Crowdsourcing von Twitter-Followern und der College-Football-Community von Reddit zu beginnen , um die "$5 Bits of Broken Chair Trophy" zu entwerfen. Viele Designs wurden schnell präsentiert und schließlich schuf Goldy eine echte Trophäe, die zum Spiel 2014 in Lincoln gebracht wurde. Minnesota gewann 28-24, um die Trophäe zu gewinnen, ihr erster Sieg in Lincoln seit 1960; es gab Minnesota auch ihre erste Siegesserie gegen Nebraska seit ihrer 3-Spiele-Serie von 1951 bis 1954.
Die Trophäe fand bei beiden Fangemeinden breite Zustimmung, aber die Verwaltungen beider Universitäten blieben still. Die Trophäe wechselte am 17. Oktober 2015 zum ersten Mal den Besitzer, nachdem Nebraska Minnesota 48-25 in Minneapolis besiegt hatte. Obwohl Nebraska sich von der Trophäe distanzierte, wurde der Stuhl in den Wochen nach dem Sieg der Cornhuskers 2015 von Spielern und Trainern gesehen und trat mehrmals auf den Social-Media-Seiten der Schule auf. Es wurde auch von Fans zu Minnesota Spirit Events mitgenommen.
Im Jahr 2016, nachdem Nebraska Minnesota in Lincoln besiegt hatte, verschwand die Trophäe scheinbar. Anfragen an die Sportabteilungen von Nebraska und Minnesota ergaben, dass keine Schule die Trophäe offiziell als offiziell anerkannte, ähnlich wie beim Floyd of Rosedale oder Little Brown Jug . Dies beendete im Wesentlichen vorübergehend die $5 Bits of Broken Chair Trophy in jeder größeren Funktion.
Am 12. September 2017 wurde über Twitter bekannt gegeben, dass Nebraska und Minnesota erneut um die $5 Bits of Broken Chair-Trophäe spielen würden, wahrscheinlich als inoffizielles Trophäenspiel. Nach einem ersten Reddit- Post, in dem Huskers-Fans Ideen sammelten, um die Trophäe am Leben zu erhalten, wurde eine neue Trophäe gebaut. Die Trophäe dient nun als Anlaufstelle für Spendenaktionen für die Team Jack Foundation in Nebraska und das Masonic Children's Hospital in Minnesota . Das Bild von Faux Pelini auf dem 5-Dollar-Schein wurde durch Herbie Husker ersetzt . Der andere 5-Dollar-Schein trägt noch ein Bild von Goldy Gopher.
