Don't forget UT/A&M! I don't know of many college rivalries that have songs about them...

...but I'm sure if there are any other college rivalries that have been penned into song, you'll educate me to them.

Army/Navy

Any other rivalry is only going to consist of fan bases from two (or just one) states.

How is tOSU/Michigan a bigger rivalry than say 'Bama/Auburn? Are you going to convince a Crimson Tide fan that a Buckeye hates Michigan more than he hates Auburn? How do you measure that?

Flordia/Flordia St. is pretty big as well.

I think that there is no deffinate way to measure which rivalry is more intense.

In no order:

Army/Navy
Bama/Auburn
Ohio st/Michigan
Florida/Flordia st
UT/TAMU

Yep I agree as well ..... it's not something you can fully appreciate unless you've lived it ...... shortly after this year's game, merchants were selling bumperstickers that read "I sacked Brodie" ........ He was sacked like 10 or 11 times .... War Eagle

personally i don't think you can put LSU vs. Rival on the list because they don't have a primary one unless you count the battle for the golden boot (arkansas) but that isn't that great of a game. also, Cal and USC has been a big game recently but both have rival teams they hate more. i don't think one is far better than another, i think you have some top tier games that could be put in any order. One thing i have always wanted to know from texas fans is who would you consider a bigger rival, TAMU or OU? Nationally the red river shoot out is bigger because of the impact on national championship picture but being from houston i see how big the day after thanksgiving is.

Those Nebraska/Oklahoma games in the Big 8 were great, especially in the 80's.

I won't argue with those. Might quibble a bit. Will say the Aggies decline began when they gave up the early LSU game. Merciful really. Ags couldn't compete.
Mine are :
Army-Navy
USC -Golden Domers
Aurburn -Bama
Miami-Fla St.
Ohio St. -Michigan.
Texas North of the red river(O.U.) vs Texas

Honorable mention...Baylor vs A&M. Those two really don't like each other.


Abc pusjed that OSU -Michigan for mightly for fourty years. However, get outta da big ten...anyone will say the same thing. It's a good game. It's a good rivalry. It's not the best. It ain't in the top three.

Cool

Yes, like the other rivalries, we have songs, jokes, etc.

But occasionally when EPSN does rivalry shows, they rate OSU/Michigan the number 1 sports rivalry period (and it is always the number 1 college rivalry).

Heck, we have riots every year, either in victory or in defeat.

And OSU/Notre Dame? Ummm, it was fun whooping them, but there's no rivalry...

Michigan is leading (uuugghhhh!):
57-39-6

This year is our 89th year.
