Regular season is great, but it is the rivalry games that we live to watch. They’re games that we circle on our calendar, count the days and sing slow sad songs when they’re over.
While most sports fans recognize Duke Blue Devils versus North Carolina Tarheels as one of the holy grail games of college basketball, I wanted to bring a list of games that are just as heated a rivalry, but don’t get nearly the recognition they should. Everyone knows, Boston Red Sox versus New York Yankees and Michigan Wolverines versus Ohio StateBuckeyes. This is my shout out to rivalries that used to rock our socks. Now, not so much.
5. Clemson Tigers versus South Carolina Gamecocks
4. Jeff Gordon versus the field
3. Kobe Bryant versus Lebron James
2. Peyton Manning versus Tom Brady
Tiger Woods versus the field
