Coolest trophy up for grabs tomorrow night
- by Doug Samuels 2 years ago
Tomorrow night's Armed Forces Bowl features BYU and Tulsa, as well as possibly the coolest trophy of any bowl game.
The Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl Trophy is comprised of actual elements obtained from the battlefields in Iraq. Those materials include parts from tanks and helicopters and the trophy weighs in at over 50 pounds.
The video below (although from last year), does a great job highlighting the making of the trophy and everything that goes into it.
