Montana/Montana State, in Bozeman. Because they get pretty fired up about it, and the setting is just about matchless in terms of scenery.

Texas/Texas A&M, Kyle Field. That has got to be high on the list of college football environments.

Kansas/Missouri, Lawrence. Because my family come from Kansas and it would be a chance to wear my 'Kansas: Keeping the world safe from Missouri since 1854' t-shirt with John Brown on it.

Thats interesting to me. There are alot of college football games on the lower levels that do not get as much fan fair as the bigger ones, but could have just as rabid fan base.

I've been in a Seattle sportsbar on Cat-Griz game day and it was raucous, so I figure in person it should be quite something. I've been to Bozeman but not for a game.

Speaking of rivals on a smaller scale, there's a rather fierce one between Western Carolina and Appalachain State. Both schools are in the mountains and basically "fight" for moutain braggin rights, oh and a trophy called "The old mountain jug". It was once named by Sports Illustrated as "The best rivalry you've never heard of". Both fanbases are pretty fired up about it too. Only downside is that it's rather difficult to get into and out of both campuses on gameday. The series is kinda lopsided, but they still get into it.

They have "The Bedlam Game" wrong. Its just called Bedlam. When OSU plays OU in Baseball, Basketball, Football, etc, It's just Bedlam.
I know I'm nitpicking, jes sayin. I also have never heard of OU vs *texas* called "The Game", Red River Shootout maybe?

LOL @UW over Oregon by a large margin, that kind of surprised me.

Yeah, the Ducks were horrible during the 60s and 70s...and the 80s. But, if you look at the last 15 years, when football began in Eugene , the Ducks have lost to UW only 4 times.

It's funny, UT leads over OU with almost the exact same record, LOL.

WOW!! 4 times in 15 years, that is stellar!! So we can both agree that the all time records aren't that big of deal. LOL

Yeah, funny thing *texas* has won 3 of the last 4 against OU, but OU has won 3 (in a row) of the last 4 Big 12 Championships, I'll take it, LOL.

I still think Bob is maybe two games up on *mack* though.
