The Illinois–Purdue football rivalry is an American college football rivalry between the Illinois Fighting Illini football team of the University of Illinois and Purdue Boilermakers football team of Purdue University. The Purdue Cannon is presented to the winner of the game.

It all started in 1905 when a group of Purdue students took the Cannon to Champaign in anticipation of firing it to celebrate a Boilermaker victory. Although Purdue won 29–0, Illinois supporters, including Quincy A. Hall, had discovered it in a culvert near the field and confiscated it before the Purdue students could start their "booming" celebration.

Hall later moved it to his farmhouse near Milford, Ill., where it survived a fire and gathered dust until he suggested it be used as a trophy in the football series between the two schools when the rivalry was resumed in 1943 after an 11-year lapse.

The Tomahawk Service and Leadership Honorary at Purdue and Illini Pride now share the maintenance duty.
