This one’s called the Musket Game

And the ’Hawks hope to pull the trigger on a rivalry victory
Fort Lewis and Adams State first played for the Musket in 1966, and it’ll be on the line for a 48th time when the Skyhawks will host the Grizzlies at 1 p.m. Saturday at Ray Dennison Memorial Field. “That’s a big deal, and I think making it a big deal is what you should do,” FLC head coach John L. Smith said. “And so I’ve tried to relate to these guys that this is huge. This is our rival.”
The Musket played for by the football teams from Adams State and Fort Lewis College is a Springfield .45-70 rifle, a weapon widely used between 1873 and 1892. Adams State has won it 33 times, including the last two, while FLC has held it 13 times to go with one tie. “So, doggone it, guys, we’ve got to lay it all on the line and make this a rival and win the darn thing,” FLC head coach John L. Smith said.
