This Saturday, the 10th oldest rivalry in the nation, the Big Game, is taking place in Palo Alto, Calif.

This year's Big Game will mark the 114th game played between Bay Area rivals, the Stanford Cardinal (9-1) and the California Golden Bears (6-4).

In last season's matchup, the Cardinal destroyed the Bears 48-14 behind quarterback Andrew Luck and returned to Palo Alto with The Axe, the trophy the two teams play for.

Let's take a look at some of the history between the two rivals.
