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.

It may be a relatively new rivalry, but it's intense as hell.
Very intense. I own a shirt from the previous season (2017). - railfan99
The War on I-4. A classic game - kevlarballoons
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!
The inaugural big ten championship game, plus the hail Mary in the regular season! This is a amazing rivalry
# 1 most watch game last year when Baylor beat Tcu 61-58
Two no-nothing programs for decades, and now, THE programs in Texas. I wish they could both play A&M and Arkansas programs now. Bring back the Southwest Conference and add OU and Oklahoma State.
The border war in search of the Bronze Boot.. The last game between the Cowboys and the Greenies generated much excitement and hate in the Mountain West.
I was at the 2017 game... it was CRAZY
Because the Mid-American Conference is underrated.
The Battle of the Palouse pits rivals a mere 8 miles apart.
Purple and Gold is better than Green and White!
The Best College in Louisiana!
Remeber in 1988, Catholics vs Convicts. That was epic. Plus this
That a good game
Anyone who thinks this one is not at the top of the list has never spoken to anyone from either school. The t-sips may say their biggest rivalry is Oklahoma, but that is just a jab at the ones they really hate.
I have been on both sides of the rivalry and trust me, there are is hatred on both sides. I wish they would bring this Thanksgiving rivalry back!
I never watch Texas A&M except when they play LSU because I want to punch every fan I see there
There is extreme hatred on both sides of this once great rivalry.V 8 Comments
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.
Heated rivalry that determines the conference champ most years! I would highly recommend this game move up the list!
These two hate each other.. They can care who the beat as long the beat each other.. To me this there biggest victory is when one of these wins
After the separation of the conferences, this rivalry fell apart, but I would love to see it again!V 3 Comments
