Top 10 NCAA Rivalries


The Top TenXW

1Ohio State vs. Michigan

I don't understand how people think that this isn't a big rivalry. You all have clearly never been to either state. The week of The Big Game, OSU crosses out every single M on campus, and Michigan never refers to them as "Ohio State". It's either Ohio or those clowns from Columbus. There's tons of bad blood, and it's seriously heated. Seriously. That being said. OH HOW I HATE OHIO STATE! HAIL! And GO BLUE!

Michigan leads the series, but fortunately, Ohio State beat Michigan seven time in a row. - Connor360

2UNC vs. Duke

Not so much in football, but if you've ever been to a UNC - Duke game at either the Smith Center or Cameron Stadium, the chaos and passion in the air is crazy. People will literally kill for their team.


This rivalry makes OH St. Mich. look like child's play. Are OH St. or Michigan ALWAYS at the top of the polls, no, are Duke and UNC, yes, at least the last 5 years. - Cbatower

Go duke! How is Ohio state vs Michigan a bigger rivalry. Tar heels and duke is amazing. Go blue devils

3Alabama vs. Auburn
4Army vs. Navy
5Flordia vs. Georgia
6South Carolina vs. Clemson

Garnet v. Orange. Spurrier v the other Bowden. City v. Country. SEC v. ACC. Both teams are always in contention for conference titles, but really only care about beating one another. The game is far more intriguing now that Spurrier is at USC and has a legitimate shot. - scfootballfan
