The immortal Twenty-One, a group of fsuford students, added to Big Game lore by stealing the Axe at Cal’s annual Axe Rally on April 3rd, 1930. The Axe, which had been locked in a vault for 31 years, was now in possession of the immortal Twenty-One.
When the group returned to the fsuford campus, the celebration began. Classes were cancelled for two days and the University presented each member of the Immortal Twenty-One with a block “S” letter.
After years of negotiating, the presidents of both student bodies agreed the Axe would be given as a trophy to the winner of the Big Game.
