Ranking the Best College Football Rivalries in the Big 12

Adam Kramer@kegsneggsNational College Football Lead WriterOctober 15, 2012

It’s been a strange, wild ride for the Big 12 which has seemingly gone from death to prominence in 18 months. The conference looked like it would be no more, but it has rebounded in a huge way.

What the conference did lose, however, were more than a handful of rivalry games. The departure of Missouri and Texas A&M has hurt the Big 12 on that front, and it also lost Nebraska a few years ago.

Still, however, the Big 12 is rich with games for teams that mean much more than a tally in the win column. As is the case for most conferences, some of these rivalry games just mean much more than others.

As for the top rivalries in the Big 12, two were no-brainers while one was difficult to narrow down.
