Illy Illibuck is a wooden turtle trophy presented to the winner of the Ohio State-Illinois football game. Originally the "trophy" was a live turtle when the tradition began in 1925, picked for its long life expectancy as a symbol of the long life of the rivalry. Since the passing of the original turtle in 1927 nine wooden replica Illibucks have been carved, each with the scores from games on its back [1]. The Illibuck is the second oldest trophy passed between Big Ten Football programs (the Little Brown Jug was created in 1903).

From 1919 until 1933 the Ohio State-Illinois game was the regular-season finale for both teams.

Another part of the rivalry once included the smoking of the peace pipe between members of two junior honorary societies, Bucket and Dipper of Ohio State and Atius-Sachem of Illinois, which occurred at halftime. This practice has not been done for many years. However, the trophy is still presented to the winning school of the previous year's contest at halftime.

The rivalry was temporarily interrupted during the 2003 and 2004 seasons when Ohio State and Illinois did not meet in the Big Ten Conference. Ohio State leads the Illibuck rivalry, 58-23-2 and all time 62-30-4.
