10 of the Greatest College Football Games That Never Happened

Alabama vs LSU is one of the most hyped college football games of all time.

Alabama vs. LSU on November 5, 2011 was one of the most anticipated  games in college football history.

It is the first time that No. 1 has played No. 2 in a regular season game since Michigan vs. Ohio State in 2006. 

The hype leading up to this game was almost incomprehensible. Had there ever been a game in any sport that had so many people talking about a rematch before the first game was even played? 

Fans and players typically campaign for a rematch after a game that concluded with uncertainty or controversy. Not before the first meeting.

My initial thought was that we should let this game play out before making plans to see the sequel. Either way, lets be grateful that the two best teams in college football played each other at least once this season. 

No sport has left fans, players, sportswriters and coaches wanting to see extra games after season's end more so than college football. The reason isn't typically because they wanted to see rematches of great games, as much as they wanted to see the games that were never played.
