Best College Football RivalriesThey 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.

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.
Oh, boy. I almost got into Stanford believe it or not, and I know that this game is a big deal every single year. - BigBerry25
Why is this ranked so low? Should be in the top 20 without a doubt!V 4 Comments
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
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
The hoosiers suck and they should just crawl back into the hole they came from! BOILER UP
Just under the Ohio State vs Michigan rivalry

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.

OVER 100 YEARS OF I HATE YOU...
Florida is scared to play miami
This is one of the best Thanksgiving road trip to New Orleans. Go G-Men
An epic battle of the little league
Fans of Oregon can't go to a game in Seattle and U-Dub fans can't go to one in Eugene. If you do... You are f'd
Best out of state west coast rivalry period. Not always the best games (i.e. Washington setting a stadium record for most points scored by an opponent in Eugene last year) but it's always the most hyped. Both fans bases are loyal and loud. Good trash talk.
west va is a small state. there are only two major schools. there ya go.
Mountaineers hate everything about the thundering terds. We've never lost to them, so let's keep it that way haha!
GO DORES ANCHOR DOWN, rocky bottom you'll always be home sweet home to PEE
In September 2016, Tennessee beat Florida for the first time in 11 years. Later that year, they would lose to a crappy Vanderbilt team. (That 4 letter word that starts with F and ends with K goes here) you Vandy.V 1 Comment
No mater who wins the luck of the Irish is on the wining side
Two irish schools going at it. - Ev662
These days, NCSU vs FSU has overtaken this game.
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.
The schools are close in proximity, in academic excellence. One private and one public---but each game is played hard to the end.
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
Bowling Green and Kent State fight for the Anniversary award as both schools were established in 1910 under the Lowry Bill (or Lowry Act).
