College Football 2011 Predictions: 10 Rivals Most Likely to Start a Brawl

There are many fiery rivalries in college football. Some are legendary for their competitiveness, others their historic importance and others are just known for being flat-out nasty. 

Fights aren't all that common in sports—except for hockey—so when a fight breaks out it becomes big, big news, such as the "Malice in the Palace" in the NBA or the South Carolina versus Clemson brawl in 2004.  Even more recently, the Charleston Riverdogs brawled with the Greenville Drive and had the highlights all over ESPN. 

When was the last time a minor league baseball team was given so much attention? 

This slideshow is dedicated to the rivalries that could get ugly in 2011 for varying reasons. This isn't a list of the best rivalries, although arguments can be made that some of these are just that, just the ones that could end in a fight. This has nothing to do with the "class" of the program, as tempers flair with the best of them, and sometimes, emotion wins out.
