The Paniolo Trophy is the name of the rivalry trophy between the Hawaii Warriors and the Wyoming Cowboys. “Paniolo” is a Hawaiian word meaning “cowboy,” and the trophy featured a bronze cowboy on horseback, twirling a lariat. The trophy was donated to the two schools by the Wyoming Paniolo Society, a group of Hawaii residents with Wyoming roots. With the 2012 move of Hawaii to the Mountain West Conference, the two teams will begin to play each other again as conference rivals, however, neither team has been able to locate the Paniolo Trophy. Due to a Mountain West scheduling quirk, the two teams will not play each other until 2014, leading to the possibility of a new replacement trophy being created based on photographs of the original trophy. The two teams have met 20 times on the football field, with Wyoming currently holding a 12–8 edge in the all time series.
