If there's anything we love in college football, it's a good out-of-conference game.
Whether it be a game between two bitter in-state programs, classic rivals or just two teams that are extremely talented, these games are the ones we circle on our calendars and help shape the national title race each and every season.
This year, there are going to be plenty of great non-conference games to watch in 2010, but it makes one wonder:
What are some of the great match-ups that have disappeared over the ages?
What are some new rivalries that should be created?
This list tackles some of the best out of conference games we could hope for not only this season but in the future. In making this list, it was important to find teams that simply would work well together.
Granted, given some of the tough conference schedules these teams play already, it is not very realistic to think that these programs would add another potential loss to their docket each and every season.
Still, let's dream for a minute, as we take a look at some of the classic games/rivalries we hope to see sooner rather than later.
