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.Series Record: F&M 60-40-3 First Meeting: Oct. 30, 1889 (10-0 DC) Last Meeting: Oct. 1, 2011 (31-24 DC)| In Lancaster: F&M 32-21-3 In Carlisle: F&M 27-19 In CC Play: DC 20-9 Last F&M Win: Sept. 17, 2010 (35-26 Last DC Win: Oct. 1, 2011 (31-24) Current Series Streak: DC + 1
