Indiana-Purdue
First game: October 30, 1897 
At stake: Old Oaken Bucket 
When: late November 
Where: Memorial Stadium, Bloomington or Ross-Ade Stadium, West Lafayette

Misc.: 
One of the oldest and most prestigious football trophies in the
nation, the Old Oaken Bucket goes annually to the winner. The first game
ended in a 0-0 tie, resulting in one of the "I-P" links attached to the
bucket.
Purdue won the 1997 game 56-7 in Bloomington, its most lopsided win ever
in Bloomington. Edwin Watson rushed for two touchdowns and Billy Dicken
passed for one score and ran for another as the Boilermakers rolled up 531
yards of total offense and put the game away with a 28-0 fourth quarter.
It was a respectable 21-7 at halftime, and 28-7 after three quarters
before the Boilermakers pulled away in the 100th meeting between the
schools.
