The Baird Brothers Trophy is awarded the winner of the annual college football game between Case Western Reserve University and The College of Wooster. The idea for the trophy originated with brothers Bob and Bill Baird, economics professors at Case and Wooster, respectively, for whom the trophy is named. The winning school gets to keep the trophy, a distinctive chain of brass fish representing each game played in the rivalry, and gets to add a new fish to the chain to represent that year's game.
In 1996, Sports Illustrated recognized the Baird Brothers Trophy as one of the most distinctive in college football.
Wooster leads the all-time series with 13 wins to Case's 11.
The teams last met on October 22, 2011 at Wooster, a 24-21 overtime victory for the Spartans.
