After Thanksgiving celebrations and the rushing crowds of Black Friday shoppers, the remaining days of November are reserved for ¨Rivalry Week.¨ This is a week dedicated to some of the most intense rivalries in college football.

Junior Kaden Rogers said, ¨Rivalry week for college isn’t only tradition, but it brings the best out of people; which is sometimes good, and sometimes bad. One of my favorite things about the rivalries is the trash talk because it’s been going on for hundreds of years. . .”

Michigan v. Ohio State – Ranked at number two on Bleacher Reports College Football’s 25 All-Time Best Rivalry Games, this showdown between these two Big Ten Conference Members dates back to 1897.

¨Personally my favorite. . . is the OSU vs UM rival because it’s been happening forever and it gets better each year. . . Even though OSU has dominated over the years, the day of the game brings the same excitement and nerves every year,¨ stated Rogers.

Michigan is currently leading the series 58-50-6. This year’s game will be held on Nov. 30 at the Big House in Ann Arbor, MI.

Auburn v. Alabama – Ranked at the top spot on Bleacher Reports College Football’s 25 All-Time Best Rivalry Games, this inner Alabama battle between these two South Eastern Conference powerhouses is home to some of the most memorable college football memories in history. With Alabama leading the series 45-36-1, this year’s bout will be hosted at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, AL on Nov. 30.

Army v. Navy – This game gives everyone a sense of patriotism from the pre-game parades with the cadets, the midshipmen, to the Super Hornets flying over, and the paratroopers dropping down. The Army-Navy game is the last regular-season game of the college football season. Taking the third spot on Bleacher Reports College Football’s 25 All-Time Best Rivalry Games, the Navy is winning the traditional competition 60-51-7. This year’s battle will take place at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, MD on Dec. 14.

Georgia v. Georgia Tech – “Clean, old-fashioned hate” is how some people describe this rivalry. With these two universities being an hour or so away, you can see how tensions get high towards the end of the year. Georgia is currently winning the series of hate 66-41-5, coming in at the 13th spot on Bleacher Reports College Football’s 25 All-Time Best Rivalry Games. This year’s game is being held at Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field, in Atlanta, GA on Nov. 30.

No matter how much you love your team or hate its rival, there can only be one winner. So whether you are sitting in the house or in the stands, bleed your colors and sing your fight song as your team takes on ¨that other team¨.
