The Top 10 Tightest Big-Time Rivalries In College Football
We’re just over forty days from the official start of the college football season.
In the meantime, we thought we’d take a look at ten of the closest rivalry games in football, many of which will be renewed this year. Just a few notes:
1. These are some of the closest rivalries in football, not necessarily the best. You don’t see Texas-Oklahoma or Ohio State-Michigan? Sorry, but those series are too lopsided overall to make this list.
2. This isn’t JUST about the closest series records. While those certainly are a deciding factor, there’s going to be a greater margin between teams that have played a hundred games compared to twenty -so often we had to compare series and go with our gut.
3. While we tried to go through just about every series, there remains the slightest possibility that we missed a real gem. If so, feel free to let us know.
Enjoy the list!
