Wisconsin’s football student managers defeat Iowa’s in The Rusty Toolbox game

For the seventh consecutive year, The Rusty Toolbox belongs to Wisconsin.

Since 1991, prior to the Wisconsin-Iowa football game each season, the Badgers’ football student managers play Iowa’s on the Friday before the game. On Friday night, the two teams of managers played and Wisconsin came out on top, 19-7.

The game itself is a flag football game, and back in 1991, the idea was created by John Chadima and Bill Dervich, who were the director of football operations at the time for Wisconsin and Iowa, respectively.

For now, the literal toolbox trophy remains in Wisconsin. Next season, on Sept. 21 — the day before the two football teams play — the two teams of managers will meet again at Iowa for what will be a battle for the prized possession once again.
