I don't think you can really beat the Michigan Ohio State rivalry, especially just a few years ago when they were both top dogs in the league.

Miami/FSU is another really good one. KU vs Mizzou is good but wouldn't make the list because neither school is a consistent national contender in football.

Florida vs UGA.... uhh that one is new to me? Florida and Tennessee have a bigger rivalry than UGA.

Well, don't take my word for it, Ohio State's very own Eddie George claimed that OU/Texas was bigger after being there a time or two to commentate.

I don't have the time to find the link but I'm sure you can find some sites that show George's comment.

When was the last time Michigan contended?

BTW, I'm not minimizing Ohio State/Michigan, no doubt it is one of the Big Daddys. So is OU/Texas. Right there with ya.

Cotton Bowl all the way. There was just a deal inked to play the RRS through 2020 I believe.....Dallas has vowed even more improvements in the stadium to continue to make the atmosphere of the matchup one of the best in all of college football.

Us folks over here in the SOUTHWest would like to keep it that way too. I don't want to watch the RRS at Jerry World. That would certainly tarnish the great tradition of this game.

I think the same way.

No need to fill that Arkansaws yayhoo's pockets.

Even though the State Fair is surrounded by a really sketchy 'hood, walking around gawkin' at all the crap & cars is fun, especially whilst imbibing a few beers.

Besides, it's a great tradition.

There is nothing like being in the Cotton Bowl on an early October afternoon, surrounded by the sights and sounds of the Texas State Fair, and looking around at the stadium split in the middle, burnt orange and crimson. I was always vastly amused by the little orange plastic mesh fence running down the middle of the center aisle.

I've always loved football and I grew up in Florida. There's some pretty good football there, too, and Alabama/Auburn and Florida/Florida State were the rivalries I grew up watching. They are awesome, but for me at least, nothing compares with the combination of the amazing traditional setting and intense rivalry between Texas and Oklahoma.

I think it's great that Florida and Georgia also play the neutral site game, but Jacksonville and the area around whatever used to be called the Gator Bowl can't match Dallas, the Texas Fair Grounds, and the Cotton Bowl.

And oh yes ... Hook 'em, Horns!

Both Michigan and Ohio State are not really contendors anymore either, but they are both high media teams. If they start having a good season the media would pick up on that instantly, if Kansas or Missouri had a good season they probably wouldn't pick up on it til the end of the season. That's all I was saying there.

OU/Texas is a huge game and I actually like watching that game :P

Both Michigan and Ohio State have contended within the last decade [although Michigan has only once.]

Each rivalry goes through cycles of relevance based on how well the programs are doing.
