The Steel Tire was awarded, from 1940 until 1995, to the winner of the annual college football game between the University of Akron and Youngstown State University.[1][2][3][4][5][6] The trophy comes from the main products of the two cities; Akron for its rubber and Youngstown for its steel.

The series was discontinued after 1995. Youngstown State leads the overall series 19–14–2, including victories in each of the last three games.[7] The two schools are scheduled to meet again on September 5, 2020.[8]
