The Governor's Cup is a trophy awarded to the victor of the annual college football game between the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville; it is also used as a reference to the rivalry itself.[2] Though the teams first played in 1912[3] the Governor's Cup has been awarded every year since 1994.

Kentucky leads the all time rivalry with 13 wins to Louisville's 9[4] but Louisville has won the trophy 9 times to Kentucky's 7. Kentucky currently holds the Governor's Cup, having defeated Louisville 31-27 at Commonwealth Stadium on September 19, 2009 for the Wildcats' third consecutive victory in the series.[5][6]
