21Glasgow Rangers vs CelticsV1 Comment
22Miami vs Florida State Football

24Auburn vs Alabama Football
25Maple Leafs vs Senators Hockey
26Red Star Belgrade vs Partizan Belgrade

Greatest duel of all time. The 80's had both.

36Michigan Wolverines vs Ohio State Buckeyes
37Inter Milan v. AC Milan
38Muhammad Ali vs Joe Frazier

Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier!

39Broncos vs. Chargers Football

This is at least the 3rd best rivalry in the NFL, if that. These two teams hate each other and are usually the two best teams in the AFC West.

40River Plate v. Boca Juniors

Should be top 10, but some American (United States) made this list...
