Trophy Coal Miners Pail Trophy

The Coal Bowl is an American college football game between California University of Pennsylvania and Indiana University of Pennsylvania. The two universities, both members of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education and the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC). The two universities first competed in 1918. The name was added to the rivalry in 2009. The winner will earn the Coal Miners Pail Trophy, sponsored by the Pennsylvania Coal Association.

The trophy was established by brothers Barry "Buck" and Bob Lippencott. Buck played football at Indiana (IUP) and Bob played at California, competing against each other in 1963 and 1964. The brothers made a donation to their universities to establish an athletic scholarship.[1] In addition, proceeds from sponsorship of the Pennsylvania Coal Association will be split between the two schools.[2][3]
