The Paddlewheel Trophy

The Paddlewheel Trophy is awarded to the winner of the annual game between Big East Conference rivals, the Pittsburgh Panthers and the Cincinnati Bearcats.

Established in 2005, the Paddlewheel Trophy was introduced to enhance a rivalry between these two schools and honor the paddle steamer riverboats that ran between the two cities along the Ohio River. Since its formation, each team has won the trophy four times.
