Series History:  The series started in Carlisle on Oct. 30, 1889, with a 10-0 Dickinson win. The teams gathered again on Nov. 28th of that year, with F&M posting a 22-0 shutout. The Diplomats lead the series 60-40-3, but Dickinson has won 20 of the last 23 meetings. 

The Wagon:  Since 1963, the F&M Diplomats and Dickinson Red Devils have played for a model of the wagon that transported both teams to play each other in the two 1889 meetings. A gift of F&M Athletic Director J. Shober Barr and Dickinson A.D. Dave Eavenson, the trophy is meant to symbolize the friendly gridiron rivalry between the two institutions. F&M holds a 25-22 advantage since the inception of the trophy game, including an 18-year victory streak from 1970 until 1987.
