The Lafayette/Lehigh rivalry has been going since the 1880s....I am not sure but it might be the oldest college sports rivalry in the country...that's most likely why it is on there

I only got this because I went to school at Lehigh. Such a huge rivalry. I'm surprised only 15% of people knew this one.

Ohio State-Michigan, are you kidding. 1897 first game, 108 total meetings. Auburn-Georgia is longer than that. 1892 first game, 115 total meetings. Lehigh-Lafayette with 147 total meetings and first played in 1884, must have player multiple times some years.

Miami-Florida State also

where on earth was army navy? notre dame usc? probably the two biggest rivalries in college sports
level 44

Not by a long shot. It depends on where you're from. In the SEC, no one cares about Notre Dame-USC because at least half the teams in our conference could beat either of those teams any day. Though I'd give you Army-Navy. That should be on here.

I'm a Georgia alum and we hate Florida even more than Tech.

I'm a Florida alum and from what I've seen I'd say that's true. Conference games mean more.

mizzou and bama should be acceptable. forgot lehigh though. go gophers!

Having grown in Madison even though Paul Bunyan's axe is a major rivalry it's lost a lot of muster in the recent years. A better one would be The Heartland Trophy which is against Iowa.

There are a couple of good Mid American Conference rivalries: The Michigan MAC Trophy between Central, Westen, and Eastern Michigan, The Miami vs. Ohio Battle of the Bricks, and my favorite, Akron vs. Kent for the Wagon Wheel.
level 76
Aug 31, 2014
Unfortunately the Border War between Mizzou and Kansas is now dormant due to conference changes. Another Missouri rivalry which is the victim of conference changes is the Hickory Stick rivalry between Truman State University and Northwest Missouri State University. It was the oldest traveling trophy in Division II football.

Coal Bowl - Marshall vs. WVU

Florida vs Georgia!

Suggestions: Iowa vs. Minnesota for Floyd of Rosedale (statue of a hog), and Iowa State vs. Iowa for the Cy-Hawk Trophy.
level 25
Jan 25, 2016
You should add Army vs navy and Michigan vs Michigan state
level 36
Jan 26, 2016
I concur with adding at least army vs navy. Been a long storied rivalry that not only has been around for years but also has a great meaning behind the game and the men who play in it.
level 12
Apr 18, 2016
Brawl of the Wild! Montana Grizzlies vs. Montana State Bobcats
level 59
May 4, 2016
You could make about 12 more questions solely out of Big Ten games. Even Nebraska, as a relative newcomer has three distinctly named "trophy" games, like - and I swear I'm not making this up - the $5 Bits of Broken Chair Trophy game between Nebraska and Minnesota.
level 42
Jun 25, 2016
You could definetly add some more rivalries such as navy vs army, Florida vs Georgia, ole miss vs miss st, and many others

Michigan vs. Michigan state

Where the heck is army vs navy? Even trump went to an army navy game!
level 26
Mar 6, 2017
Army vs Navy hasn't been a good rivalry for the past couple years, so it kind of dropped off the map a little. It's still know, just not as well as it used to be.
level 43
Mar 24, 2017
Considering the Army-Navy game has its own day when nobody else plays on that day, it should definitely be on here. Other than that, I think this is a good quiz. Michigan-Michigan State should not be on here because Michigan-Ohio State is the bigger of the two rivalry games and a team should only show up once in this. If you want one very few people will get, maybe add North Texas-Middle Tennessee State. It's such a big rivalry for the two teams that when UNT switched to C-USA, MTSU followed for the rivalry aspect of football.

Virginia versus Virginia Tech in the Commonwealth Cup

One you might add--The Border War, the battle for the Bronze Boot, played 109 times since 1899 between Wyoming and Colorado State.

As usual, sports fans bought down my point total. Coming in with virtually no knowledge of the subject I managed to come up with 10, which I was feeling pretty good about, but then I only got 1 point for my efforts.

The Dean Foy Sportsmanship trophy is awarded to the winner of the Iron Bowl , although this is not widely known outside the rivalry .

Add the old oaken bucket. IU vs Purdue. Best rivalry in all of sports
