College Football's New Trophy

 
Posted July 14th, 2014 @ 2:11pm

The most boring named championship tournament (College Football Playoff) has a trophy. From ESPN:

College Football Playoff executive director Bill Hancock unveiled the more-than-2-foot-tall national championship trophy on Monday, saying it "will become an icon of our game."

Made from 24-karat gold, bronze and stainless steel, the bottom of the trophy is shaped like a football and rises to form an actual-sized ball at the top.

Hancock said the trophy, which weighs about 35 pounds, is designed to be hoisted from its foot-high base. Hancock took a selfie with the trophy but says the first hoisting will be reserved for the winner of the first national championship game Jan. 12 in Arlington, Texas.

There you go.
