Best College Football Rivalries

They are the games that each team and all of their fans look forward to each year and the games where even if the rest of the season is a total bust, you still feel okay about it because the team beat the rival. College football rivalries are among the strongest in all of sports and these rivalries are the most intense of them all. Don't agree with the list?

The Top Ten

Ohio State vs. Michigan
I lived in Alabama one summer and I can say they are passionate about their rivalry but no more than Ohio State and Michigan fans are about their rivalry. So what if Ohio and Michigan have pro teams in their state and Alabama doesn't. OSU/UM is still the greatest rivalry. If anyone thinks that the Iron Bowl is the greatest, go to a UM/OSU game or just be there for the tailgate and you will change your mind.
Nothing beats the rivalry these to teams have. 110 years of hasty attitudes and that intense game in November. It is the greatest accomplishment knowing that for the next 364 days you can hold your head high knowing you beat the "other team". Take a step inside the big house for this game, and I guarantee there will be no doubt in your mind what THE greatest rivalry of college football is. Michigan vs. Ohio State. No questions asked.
I am from Toledo, Ohio and no other sporting event compares to "The Game". It all started with the Toledo War and from that day on the 2 states have hated each other! It is not just a rivalry, it is a way of life! You are either an OSU fan or an UM fan from birth! Toledo basically shuts down that day, even the gas stations take the $ of gas off their signs and put up the score of the game! Family's are truly divided and no matter how good or bad either team is doing in the season, it all comes down to "The Game"! Go Blue!


[Newest]Go wolverines! Bucks suck

2Auburn vs. Alabama
Sorry Michigan and Ohio State fans... you may have more fans in your fan bases, but the rivalry between the University of Alabama and Auburn University is probably the rivalry filled with the most anger, hatred, and passion behind them. Ruined marriages, houses burned down, murders, you name it. On Iron Bowl game day there is no grey area, you are either Auburn, or Alabama and you don't talk to the fans of the other team until after the game is over. If you have never lived in the state of Alabama you would never understand. The University of Alabama alone has been the home of 2 of the best college football coaches that college football has ever seen. No coach has as much bragging rights as the late Paul Bear Bryant and the genius that Nick Saban is today.
Ohio and Michigan have 3 professional football teams between them. Alabama not only no professional football teams but not professional sports teams at all. The Iron Bowl is the biggest sporting event in the state and it involves the entire state...its all they have
It is a rivalry that polarizes the state. Yes, other NCAA teams do exist, and you can root for them in the state of Alabama. But when the Iron Bowl comes around, everyone must pick a side, regardless if you could care a less about Alabama or Auburn!
[Newest]The Iron Bowl is the best hands down.
More comments about Auburn vs. Alabama

3Texas vs. Oklahoma
Two states that hate each other over more than just sports. Arrogant Texans trying to push around proud Oklahomans. Two states that lined their armies up along a river about to kill each other over it. Texans don't want Oklahomans in their state and Oklahomans don't want to be there either. Both sides hope that the other is perpetually defeated by anybody else at anything else. No forgiveness. No forgetting. The whole of Oklahoma watches and listens intensely to the shootout. Every T.V. and radio is tuned in. Store shelves are emptied of snacks and drinks. Food delivery vehicles line the streets (yes, they are listening to the game). Phones are silent, but houses rumble with cheers and jeers. There is no other rivalry. Rivalry is far too pleasant a word to describe the animosity between these two states.
This is a game where, every year, regardless of the standing/rank of the teams (though usually high), the teams are in upset mode. Both teams have had their season changed as a result of this game. Boomer Sooner!
Best rivalry in college football. Every game is good and who knows what's going to happen. If one team team puts a bad spanking on the other, it will be time for revenge. Second best rivalry is Texas vs Texas A&M. Them poor Agiies been getting whupped just about every year.


4Army vs. Navy
All the rivalries on this list are great! Depending on where you live, each one has traditions, deep-seated feelings, sets the tone for the year, and for the players, the games are all-out, all-in wars! Army-Navy has all these characteristics, and one more... At these schools, the students raise their right hand and swear out an oath to support and defend the Constitution on their first day of attendance. So this rivalry, for the players and students, is an all-out, all-in war between "brothers-in-arms. " For Americans, there has always been something truly special about that! As for me, GO BLACK KNIGHTS!
Army and Navy may not be the powerhouses they once were, but no college football game has the same implications (both on and off the field) that the fabled Army/Navy Game does. Anyone who stands in attendance at an Army/Navy game in person and doesn't feel a certain chill run up their spine quite simply isn't an American.
ARMY-NAVY "The Best Rivalry In College Football" This season has been up and down for the Midshipmen but with an upset today against Notre Dame, can help salvage this season. A 12th win over Army will make the season complete. Although for 60 minutes we are rivals but at the end of the day we are on the same team (Brothers In Arms)." GO NAVY BEAT ARMY"


[Newest]I like both teams but lets beat it


5Utah vs. BYU
I'm a Mormon but my Alma Mater is Utah. So for those who think they are mutually exclusive, I don't fit that mold. I cheer for Utah when they play BYU, but I actually root for BYU when they are not playing Utah. There are many nasty fans on both sides of the aisle, but that is what makes this rivalry so fierce.

I think most of these people literally hate each other, I mean it is downright unholy. With the self-righteousness of the BYU fans, and the barbaric Utah fans, it really brings out the ugliness on both sides. I have friends from both schools, and I can say that there are some pretty cool dudes going to both schools. But some real ugly characters come out of the wood works when Utah and BYU meet up. It is quite a spectacle.
if Luke weren't in Russia right now he'd probably say something like this, "Utah is about to get anhilalated by their biggest fear, BYU." you should've seen it. He sat amoung the Utah fan section with a blue cape, tall furry blue marching band hat with byu everything dangling from him. we walked through the red section to get food during half time and drunk man after dumb fan from utah tried to physically harm him. Do note he is this 19 year old kid and simply walked around.... ha ha haaaa. so funny how disgruntled these hot tempered ute fans were the day their team was smeared! i love it!
It's more than just a game. It is a battle of cultures, philosophies, and lifestyle. BYU fans a Utah fans don't just think their schools are better, they think their fellow fans and supporters are better people than those who cheer for the opponent. They equate their schools to an entire belief system and when they do battle on the gridiron, it is a symbolic jihad. Wining the holy war is a reaffirmation of a fan's sense of all around superiority.
This rivalry is way fun to be apart of. Everyone takes it WAY too seriously, though.

6Florida vs. Georgia
To the guy who said "they only lead Florida in the series because the war.. Only 2 players on that team went to the army, while 80 of the gators seniors and juniors went, and Georgia thought they were good so they ran up the score... A shame that we had to teach them quite a few lessons after the war... "

Are you stupid? I don't know of ANY war that spanned 1915-1989. The Gators got their asses handed to them more often than not during that span. You guys didn't "teach" us anything after the war (whichever war you're referring to). You kept on LOSING. Remember that Heisman winner of yours, Spurrier? Recall what we did to him that year? So does he. That's exactly why he made sure to schedule a bye week every year prior to the Cocktail Party. He didn't want UF to lose to UGA the way they had for decades.

As of right now, this rivalry is as good as they come. Even the last several Gator victories have only been by 7 points or less since 2002.
Some of the best players to ever play the game came through this game. You'll never see so many drunk people in one place. A stadium half full of fans is louder than most other schools full stadiums
Two of the perennial powerhouses in college football and two of the greatest programs in history of football duke it out for pride and, more often than not, a spot in the SEC Championship Game.
[Newest]Good rivalry played in a neutral site.

7Clemson vs. South Carolina
just wait. carolina is gonna pull ahead one day. look what we did in just one year! were world series champs in baseball, knocked off number one in football and knocked off number one in basketball! now we've got lattimore and alshon. :) watch your backs
There has been atleast 10 brawls in this rivalry, most recent one was in 2004. Tell me this rivalry isn't the fiercest in the nation
Carolina is gonna rock it tonight.
Go Gamecocks.
Next year we have Wilds and Lattimore and nobody will be able to stop that combo
[Newest]Its pretty much the game for whoever rules the state of South Carolina the team I always cheer for is Clemson


8USC vs. Notre Dame
The geographical separation between these schools may be seen as a point of weakness, but what other rivalry could withstand being in different conferences (or none at all) in two entirely separate regions of the country?
nothing is better than this michigan ohio state is nothing if ur a notre dame fan u undderstand the importance of this day
This rivalry does not need to have two teams that live 20 feet apart, or be in the same conference, all it needs is two teams that hate each other
[Newest]The two greatest NCAA football programs in history. Go Irish!

9Oregon vs. Oregon State
The Civil War is one of the best games every year!
Ducks are the best so if you are a beavers fan we have beat so many times I can't count them
Instate rivalries don't get any more exciting... There have been some barnburners and toilet bowls.. All exciting.

10USC vs. UCLA
who cares about any other rivalry in southern california. NO ONE CARES ABOUT ANOTHER RIVALRY
anyone in southern California is one side or the other. USC fans just make you want to be UCLA fans.
Cross town rivals. yeah thats an amazing rivalry.

The Contenders

11Miami vs. Florida State
By far- the best talent- the best teams-the steepest price to pay for loser- and I felt EVERY wide right and the one wide left deep in my gut for years after as FSU lost 3 rings to the U. Knew we had to beat them to win Nat'l Championship and we did both times we won it... but it ran through Miami and Tally


Voted by ESPN the greatest rivalry of the last 20 years, including 7 national championships since 1983 and the 2 winningest programs since 1980. Not too mention two of the most memorable games ever, Wide Right 1 and 2.
decided about 5 national championships cmon noles vs canes
of course miami dominates


[Newest]It this was the 90's this would be number one...

12Florida vs. Florida State
A David and Goliath contest that evolved into a heavy weight championship boxing match--with often the fastest, most talented athletes in the country from rival elementary, middle, and high schools across the state. Throw in top talent from around the country and some spice--Spurrier, Deion, and other instigaters. And, you have the best rivalry in the country.
Ether side would trade a conference championship to beat the other team and maybe even a national if we didn't have to beat each other to get to it.
The fact that this is where it is just shows you that half these guys don't actually watch college football
[Newest]I think Florida State would beat Florida.


13Texas vs. Texas A&M
Why is BYU on here they're just a bunch of stuck up mormons. Texas A&M is built to hate that orange college
The best rivalry in the State of Texas!
It doesn't matter if both teams are 0-11 or 11-0, when they step onto the field, it is A^^M vs Texas, nothing else.
Aggies are built to hate Texas

14LSU vs. Arkansas
As an LSU fan, I can say that in this rivalry The two fan bases never really go at each other's throat, but something special ALWAYS happens on this Thanksgiving rivalry.
This is a pretty good rivalry. GO HOGS

15Missouri vs. Kansas
All other rivalries pale in comparison. The most INTENSE and HATE driven rivalry in all of college football. Born of the unpleasantness between the two states following the American Civil War, the "Border War" polarizes entire families and communities across Kansas and Missouri. Otherwise civil citizens don their blue and red or black and gold and flock to Arrowhead where their teams wage an all-out war for the next 3-4 hours. Winner brings home the Indian War Drum, and the bragging rights last for the next 364 days. They take the last day off so they can play again. MIZ-ZOU!
Rooted in actual war. The civil war. No one hates another
Bunch of folks the way we hate Kansas. They attacked Osceola
and we burned Lawrence to the ground. I
Actually might hate Kansas more than I love Missouri. That's a rivalry.
Michigan vs. Ohio State is a joke in comparison.
Just go to a game and you will be forced to put this rivalry in the top three. After the game, that is all the people talk about for months and whoever wins has major braggin rights. TRUST ME, go to a game!


16Harvard vs. Yale
How is this so low? Just because they're now FCS teams doesn't mean that this isn't the singular best rivalry in sports. These two teams were always powerhouses back in the day. Not only that, but it's not every day you get to watch a nationally televised game in which 90% of the players know that "hyperbole" isn't pronounced "hyperboll". This is game is also always played in a stadium at least ninety years old. This is the most storied rivalry of all time and should be at least in the top five. Go Harvard!
It is called "The Game". Not the Iron Bowl. Not the Backyard Brawl. It is simply, "The Game. Enough said.
Simply the purest and the best!

17Ole Miss vs. Mississippi State
This rivalry is insane. All State ever does is talk about how much Ole Miss needs to go to hell, and Ole Miss says the same to MSU. The games are intense. There are eggs thrown at the Egg Bowl, fights breaking out, and some pretty harsh stuff
such an incredible rivalry very deserving of this list
The egg bowl is my favorite! I also like LSU and Alabama and Army and Navy. Go state, lsu, and army!


18Georgia vs. Georgia Tech
Oh! If I had a daughter, sir, I'd dress her in White and Gold,
And put her on the campus to cheer the brave and bold.
But if I had a son, sir, I'll tell you what he'd do"
He would yell, 'TO HELL WITH Georgia! ' like his daddy used to do.
georgia tech vs. georgia is an in state rivarly that has many in a love hate relationship between these two schools.

19Tennessee vs. Florida
this is THE college rival if you say otherwise you're wrong


In recent times this is as intense a rivalry as it gets.
this is on of the best games out there

20Washington vs. Washington State
This rivalry divides the state. The Cascades separate not only the climate but the college you root for. The Cougs represent the country while the Huskies represent the city. Pullman is a rural, dry college town while Seattle is large and rainy.

This rivalry game is big enough the winner has their name painted on the Space Needle!
The only problem with this is that WSU needs to be in front of UW, because in my humble opinion this is the best football rivalry of all time! The Cougars are better than the Huskies though, even though most people don't think so.
The Apple-Cup is maybe, not the best.... but without a doubt the most underrated....There are two types of people in Washington State... Your either a Dawg or a Coug....And they hate eachother 24/365....

21Wisconsin vs. Minnesota
It's the classic border battle. They play for Paul Bunion's ax.


Oldest running rivalry in college fb. Awesome. And, come on, to see a badger and a gopher go after it is always exciting!
Only two D1 school in each state wisco dominates for past fifteen years so it loses value there

22Iowa State vs Iowa
when its football season its the number 1 thing to look forward too! its tons of clashes for bragging rights for the state
This game is the biggest thing in Iowa since corn.
Doubt if any game dominates an entire state the way this game does.


23Arizona State vs Arizona
Why is this not on the list, Oldest trophy, the territorial Cup, This should be at lest in the top 30, Duel in The Desert, and Why is arizona ucla ahead of this stupid...

24Texas Tech vs. Texas A&M
Guns up! This is a great rivalry. Go Tech!

25LSU vs. Alabama
When Tulane University had a viable team, the rivalry was between Tulane and LSU and it was fun fierce. Bets causing the loser to paint his house the winner's team colors. Many purple and gold homes in New Orleans by default! But just as many by choice. Years passed and Tulane was not a Thanksgiving game any longer.
Nick Sabin came to LSU and was awesome. Then Sabin wanted to go pro. Then Sabin did not like the pros. Then Sabin insulted the entire state of Louisiana by going to a truly rival team. The rivalry is not so much with the University of AL as it is to defeat Sabin.
Besides, Les Miles smiles! And is a really great mentor to his players.
The SEC may not be in this new Championship playoff, but it is still the toughest in the nation.
This one intensified thanks to Nick Saban

26Tennessee vs. Alabama
Isn't what it once was since the SEC split in two. But, Bear Bryant once said he didn't know exactly what kind of football team he had each year until after the 3rd Saturday in October
This is among the oldest rivalries in the south. Can't believe its not in the top 10.

27Lafayette vs. Lehigh
Without this game, rivalries would never exist. This is the oldest college football rivalry. These are two academic powerhouses bonded together by hate. Go Hawks!
all i am gonna say is that this is the most played rivalry in all of college football. these two teams have met in 142 total games. the next closest is Harvard vs. Yale with 121 total games
This is the granddaddy of them all. These guys actually go to class, real student athletes. No NCAA violations here.
[Newest]There is no better feeling than to beat Lehigh. Go pards.

Hoping to be there next year!

28Pittsburgh vs. West Virginia
What makes this game so great to watch is the fact that these two teams are so close together, hince the name: The Backyard Brawl. Its really more than hated rivals, its basically college players going against there old high school buddies. Even if one team is considerably better than the other, they will still put up great numbers against each other.
Lick the Pit! W(By God! ) V U! The fist fight continues and will be a great 'OOC' for both. May we feud forever! (with sportsmanship and with respect and an occasional fiery davenport or two). WVU1968-72.
Heated rivalry that determines the conference champ most years! I would highly recommend this game move up the list!
[Newest]After the separation of the conferences, this rivalry fell apart, but I would love to see it again!

29Kentucky vs. Louisville
A great rivalry that keeps getting better and better. Louisville's program is now in the Top 10 or 15 annually and Kentucky's program is moving up the ranks in the SEC and going to bowl games. The atmosphere at these games is incredable. The whole state is glued to the TV when these two play.

both teams ranked this year, last year kentucky hurt louisvilles heisman rb michael bush, its heatin up every year

30Cal vs. Stanford
SMART VS. SMART!!! Most of the game were close and decided by less then 7 points. It is huge in northern california. The atmosphere is amazing! DONT FORGET THE PLAY!!!
A rivalry similar to Harvard and Yale, where it's not only on the field, court, etc. But also academically in the classroom and research.
How is this not in the top ten? Both of these schools play pranks on each other all the the time
[Newest]What!? There's enough history to put this in the top 10. The play, all the pranks... This is THE Big Game.

31North Carolina vs. Duke

32Florida vs. LSU
This is going to be the biggest game year in and year out for a long long time. This is by far the biggest rivalry game in college football. Next year it will be the two past national champions playing to see who is going to get the next one. Michigan / Ohio State days are boring and over.

33Notre Dame vs. Michigan
This is a big game Michigan even did the Chicken dance to prove and stinks poop.

34LSU vs. Ole Miss

35Michigan vs. Michigan State
Nobody likes to be called a "little brother" in sports. Lots of hate in this game, should be higher


playing for the 100th time

36Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State

37Georgia vs. South Carolina

38Georgia vs. Auburn
Each team has ruined potential great seasons for the other team. One of the most intense games every year.
One of the best rivalries ever. tied 55-8-55
Are you kidding me?! 70? THE oldest rival in the south, at 70? I mean, UGA BIT at an Auburn! That's intense hate right there!

39Michigan State vs. Notre Dame

40Virginia Tech vs. Virginia
virginia rule and vt sucks!! even though uva lost they still rule
Its turkey season on nov. 24 vt may be good UVA is better


41Boise State vs. Idaho
A rivalry characterized by extended periods of unrelenting brutality inflicted by one school upon the other. There is no respect here. With Ohio State/Michigan, Army/Navy, Alabama/Auburn and rivalries like that, they hate each other, sure, but they sort of respect each other as rivals. With Idaho and BSU it's all hate. If either institution could cause the other not to exist, they'd do it in a heartbeat.
This ain't no school yard bullcrap...this is real football. You play for keeps

42Penn State vs. Michigan
Michigan always wins, but thats what makes PSU hate them so much, not OSU vs Michigan but pretty close.
An annual rivalry that can (2005) decide a champion

43Indiana vs. Purdue
What the crap. Any football fan who has sense would know that the Hoosiers boilermakers game is one of the top in all of college football you can't argue with that. It's better than Georgia Georgia tech it's better than Michigan Michigan st, it's better than a lot of them that are in front of it! GO HOOSIERS
Wow! I can't believe this one isn't up there!


I love the hoosiers they are awesome


44Montana vs. Montana State
One of the longest running rivals in football history! Every year it gets bigger and bigger. I run into people all over the country that know about the Cat-Griz rivalry, it makes me proud to be a bobcat! 111th year of playing the "Brawl of the Wild" is tomorrow.
I am a Michigan State alumni and I did my grad work at Montana State and I still live in Bozeman. This game is fantastic. It is as fun to attend as mich-osu. But when I went to see mich-osu I wanted both to lose! GO SPARTY! GO CATS! Ps I hate Michigan but oh how I hate Ohio state!
This game is everything to the residents of Montana. It might as well be the first day of Christmas.

45Colorado vs. Nebraska
Nebraska Colorado is a battle of the two Big 12 North teams that have any history whatsoever. It almost seems to be the good guys vs. bad, the law vs. the rebels.
Huskers, get ready for a great Buffalo Massacre.
These guys have always had a tough rivalery

46LSU vs. Auburn

47Penn State vs Pittsburgh
Best football game of all time. Pennsylvania would shut down when the game would take place. Best game - 1981..... Spring board for Penn State's 1st National Championship.
Joe Pa ruined a game that was more rich in tradition than he will ever be. The state of Pennsylvania would all be watching this one.
Sure its not one of the currently played rivalries but historically it belongs in the top ten
[Newest]Pitt Penn State is coming back in 2016 Go pitt

48Colorado vs. Colorado State
I hear everywhere I travel about CSU vs. CU... people are amazed that next door neighbors will throw down in the middle of the street. Talk about intense... this game takes the cake.
Trust funders and drugged up snobs in Boulder vs. The folks. It's about culture as well as football

49Alabama vs. Texas A&M

50Amherst vs. Williams
An epic battle of the little league

51Grambling vs. Southern
This is one of the best Thanksgiving road trip to New Orleans. Go G-Men

just take those thoughts and think about it..


Big 12 needs to let them play every year. Every other rivalry there was preserved. Sad day when this rivalry went south.
Very sad to see this great rivalry go down in flames. But Nebraska moving onto the Big 10 is the best move for them.
[Newest]This should be number one these guy had a great battle

53West Virginia vs. Marshall

These days, NCSU vs FSU has overtaken this game.

59Vanderbilt vs. Tennessee
GO DORES ANCHOR DOWN, rocky bottom you'll always be home sweet home to PEE

60Illinois vs. Iowa
Two successful big 10 teams. In football it gets intense every year, crazy fans and cold states.
A border rivarly that has lost some of its lustre due to the teams not playing. But a stunning and intense rivalry nontheless that has spanned generations.

61Richmond vs. William & Mary
The oldest rivalry in the south. Forget UVA UNC, this game is the best in the old south. As a plus, both schools are top level academically and contend in the FCS
The schools are close in proximity, in academic excellence. One private and one public---but each game is played hard to the end.

62Bowling Green vs. Kent State
Bowling Green and Kent State fight for the Anniversary award as both schools were established in 1910 under the Lowry Bill (or Lowry Act).

63Nebraska vs. Texas
The Longhorns have been a thorn in Nebraska's side for a while. And Huskers do want revenge for all of the possible championship years they've could had had. GO HUSKERS!

64Notre Dame vs. UCLA

65Wisconsin vs. Michigan State
The inaugural big ten championship game, plus the hail Mary in the regular season! This is a amazing rivalry

The Battle of the Palouse pits rivals a mere 8 miles apart.

71Baylor vs. TCU

72Arizona vs. UCLA

73Troy vs. Middle Tennessee

74Cincinnati vs. Miami (OH)

76UConn vs. Syracuse

77Ferris State vs. Central Michigan

78Notre Dame vs. Miami

79Minnesota vs. Iowa

82Pittsburgh vs. Notre Dame

Two tiny schools in upstate New York but all hell breaks loose in this "Cortaca" Game...
