The best thing about college football is the intense intra-conference rivalries. But which one is best? Each conference boasts one or two premier rivalries every year, so I've chosen the best one from each conference and ranked them against the other conferences.
Extra curricular activity always is a bonus when evaluating the magnitude of a rivalry, and it was taken into consideration.
Other metrics used were parity of winning, fan involvement, and overall presence of the rivalry within the conference.
Be sure to mark these games down on your 2011 college football calendar!
