The Dakota Marker is the trophy awarded to the winner of the annual college football game played between the
NDSU Bison and the SDSU Jackrabbits.
The Dakota Marker is a model replica of the quartzite monuments that were used to decipher the border between North and South Dakota when Dakota Territory was split into 2 states.

So, the Bison traveled across the border, ready to play some football,
and NDSU retains the Dakota Marker.

And at the same time...on a different channel...

The University of Nebraska was at the University of Minnesota.
The Huskers did not disappoint.
