Best College Football Rivalries

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Troy vs. Middle Tennessee

The two teams are one of the few, if any, Sunbelt teams that get at least one of their home games broadcast by ESPN. Both teams point to this game as the difference maker for their season, and fight for an unusual rivalry trophy: the Palladium, which has its roots in ancient Greek mythology.

82 Cincinnati vs. Miami (OH)

These two schools hate each other and the battle for the keg of nails is one of the most underrated rivalries in college football. Being only 40 miles apart, this rivalry is intense. - mdcoy

84 UConn vs. Syracuse
85 Ferris State vs. Central Michigan
86 Notre Dame vs. Miami
87 Minnesota vs. Iowa

The Battle for The Pig

88 SMU vs. TCU

Come on! 79? It's the Battle for the Iron Skillet! I thought it would be at least in the top 30 or 40.

I call this the DFW showdown because TCU is in Fort worth and SMU is in Dallas

89 Pittsburgh vs. Notre Dame

Quite underrated for a rivalry
