The Birmingham Bowl trophy is one of a kind.
The trophy is modeled after an iconic statue named Vulcan on top of Red Mountain — which is near the site of where the game will be played. It was created by an Italian sculptor and has been around since the 1904 World’s Fair St. Louis, according to Sports Illustrated.
The most curious part of the trophy is that it is a man who is not wearing any pants.
Perfectly normal, right?
