College footballs Biggest Rivalries (No Order)
Michigan - Ohio state
Florida State - Florida
Miami - Florida State
Texas - 0U
Cal - UCLA
Army - Navy
I got to go with Texas, OU, im in dallas, its played at a neutral site which makes it more of a rivalry, no advantage to either team
Michigan Ohio State also gets a vote.

Cal-Stanford is always fun =D It's crazy how intense some people will get at the games since they're close enough for fans of both teams to attend. Fights are quite routine =p
BRING OUT THE AXE!! GO GO OSKI!!

UW-MN for the Prestigious "Paul Bunyan Axe" is the only answer.

Alabama-Auburn. The entire state is subdivided into two camps, it's like a civil war. There's actually a football matchup called The Civil War but I forgot what teams are in that. Also Ole Miss/Mississippi State play the Egg Bowl, Alabama and Tennessee have a big rivalry game called The Third Saturday in October, and the Auburn vs. Georgia rivalry is the oldest in the nation.

Georgia-Georgia Tech. While we're on Georgia, Georgia-Florida, the aforementioned Georgia-Alabama, and to a lesser extent, Georgia-Tennessee. God, how I love the SEC.

ucla vs usc isnt such a great rivalry becuase ucla is never good... i think that rivalry only exists within california... as most of us non californians have never even recognized it
the most tradition rich rivalry is probably army v navy

I've experienced two giant rivalries first hand.
Living in Columbus, OSU-Michigan week is absolutely insane. I've heard the folks "up north" don't get as excited as we do down here, and I know they don't get more excitedÐbecause that just wouldn't be possible. The games have been incredibly close the past few years, and ALWAYS seem to determine who goes to the Rose Bowl/BCS championship/etc. The rivalry also goes way back, although the best years were probably during the Woody-Bo era.
Last fall I went to Boston to look at Harvard, Williams + Amherst. I timed things up so that I was at Williams during the Amherst-Williams game. Things there were crazy, but not quite in the OSU-Mich way (although tons of drinking happens before/during both games). Williams doesn't charge admission to their stadium, which is odd. Stranger still, though, is that most students seemed to spend the entire game in a the tailgating field outside the stadium, drinking and cooking out. The stands were filled (by the end of the first half or so), but mostly with what looked like parents + alumni. Even though the atmosphere seemed more "party" than "intense," some great football went on.
Oh, and you guys can't forget the MIT vs. Harvard/Yale rivalry. The techies like to pull pranks to disrupt the big game, and that cracks me up.
