College football has some of the most rabid fans, and lunatic emotions, in sports. The Greatest College Football Rivalries uses, along with fans' passion, a gauge devised by longtime sportswriters Ken Rappoport and Barry Wilner: the "hate rate." How bitter is the rivalry? Take for example Texas–Texas A&M, or Michigan–Ohio State. Which conflict is more heated? The intensity generated by these rivalries remains at the highest level possible in such longtime feuds between Army and Navy, California and Stamford, Florida State and Miami--and many, many more. This is a must-read for the millions of die-hard college football fans who flock to stadiums across the country every fall.
