It seems to me that the two funnest games in all of college football are the Texas vs. Oklahoma game in Dallas, Texas at the Cotton Bowl and the Florida vs. Georgia game at the old Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Florida. Which of these two games would you rather attend in person and why? Which would be more fun.

So it's the Red River Shootout vs. The Largest Outdoor Cocktail party. Anyway, I think it's cool that the UT vs. OU game also has the perk of the Texas State Fair going on.

Texas vs OU, but I'm a big Texas homer I guess.

Anyway, other games of interest:

Ohio State vs. Michigan
Notre Dame vs. USC
Cal vs. Stanford
Army vs. Navy
Miami vs. FSU

Can't believe you left off Bama vs. Auburn.

My friend from Alabama said that before he moved to Texas the Iron Bowl was far and away the most heated rivalry. However, he attended the OU/Texas game just once and said the electricity and emotion was even greater than the Bama/Auburn feud.

OU/Texas is not a game, it's a fight. Bring them Horns on!

I would rather attend the Red River Shootout in person. It's always a good game and like you said, the Texas State Fair is right next to the stadium (great food there too!!). I would also enjoy seeing the Iron Bowl in person.

Texas vs. ou is the best game in college. Just my opinion. Orange on one side and maroon on the other. At the Texas state fair, each school mooking the players bands and fans doing there best to give you 3 middle fingers...lol. Maybe I can go this year.

Bama vs Auburn =2
Florida vs Georgia =3
Mich vs OSU =4
Arizona vs ASU =5...due to the fact the fans always fight especially in Tempe. seen it

I would much rather attend the Texas/Oklahoma game. My reasoning being that this game seems much more interesting to me and even though I'm from Georgia I have a strong dislike for UGA. I would probably enjoy the tailgating more than the game if I went to UGA/FL game.

The Georgia vs South Carolina game is more interesting.

I also would like to attend the Michigan/Ohio State game. It was impossible for me to get tickets when I lived in Ohio.

We're used to Aggies being wide of the mark on this forum.

Oklahoma State fans think the OU/Oklahoma State game is ALSO the greatest rivalry game. Doesn't make it so.

Gotta go with national perception and not your pure hatred/envy of the Horns, Aggie.

I hate how they won't call the Georgia/Florida game the Cocktail Party anymore because they think it encourages drinking.

Yeh, as if they could do anything to discourage the drinking in the first place.
