When you hear the words "pageantry" and "passion" as they relate to college football, the first thing that usually comes to mind is rivalry week. At no other time in the season do fans display their true colors more than when their favorite team squares off against a well-known enemy, and we've reached that time in the 2013 season.

A number of rivalry games will take place with conference and national title hopes at stake, but even teams without a whole lot left to play for will surely take the field with more fire than in any other week of the year.

We're taking a look at the best rivalry games in Week 14, so notable matchups, such as Oklahoma-Oklahoma State and Army-Navy, are left out because they occur later in the season.

In considering the order of this list, we used two factors equally: What's at stake this season and what kind of tradition does the game have? Not all rivalries are created equally, but what kind of implications one has on the college football landscape in 2013 will certainly be considered.

With that said, let's take a look at the top 10 rivalry games of Week 14.

 

All stats via ESPN unless otherwise noted. Here is a list of the times, dates and locations of the games being played in Week 14.
