College football has a ton of rivalries. Some are still hot, some are cold, and some are merely in the refrigerator, waiting to be heated up as soon as the weaker team gets strong again.
While proximity plays a major role in college football rivalries, the quality of the teams involved has changed since the inception of many of them. (That's certainly the case with Boston College and Notre Dame.)
As we examine the 10 rivalries we all wish would start as soon as possible, the major criterion is the quality of the teams involved. Some will be conference rivalries, and others will be cross-conference matches that we wish would replace games like Oregon State vs. Nicholls State.
Phase one consists of specific teams whose rivalries would provide high entertainment value, and phase two will be introduced later in the show.
Here are 10 rivalries that we wish would start, regardless of conference affiliation or distance between schools.
