The Stagg-Paterno Championship Trophy is in Iowa City this weekend as part of the Big Ten's "Honoring Legends. Building Leaders." Mobile Tour.

Football fans can take pictures with the conference's first-ever championship trophy in Hubbard Park today from 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. and in Carver-Hawkeye Arena from 4:45-6 p.m.

The 30-inch trophy — a detachable silver football atop a base of crystal pillars — will be in the Krause Family Plaza in Kinnick Stadium from 1-3 p.m. Saturday and again from 4:30-6 p.m.

The tour takes place in a mobile RV that will bring the trophy to every Big Ten school this football season. The Stagg-Paterno Trophy will be in Minneapolis on Oct. 29, when Iowa plays the Gophers.

Former Daily Iowan sportswriter and current HawkeyeSports.com contributor Michele Danno will report from the tour for BigTen.org. Her coverage can be found at the tour's blog — bigten.org/blog/mobile-tour — and on Twitter by following @B1GMobileTour.

Danno's content is part of a conference-wide competition. Each school selected a representative for the tour, and fans can vote on their favorite reporter after the season is over. The winning student will attend either the Big Ten football championship game or the Big Ten bowl game of her or his choice.
