FOOTBALL FEUDS The Greatest College Football Rivalries KEN RAPPOPORT AND BARRY WILNER
College football has some of the most rabid fans and lunatic emotions in sports. Football Feuds uses, along with fans’ passion, a gauge devised by longtime sportswriters Ken Rappoport and Barry Wilner: the “hate rate.” How bitter is the rivalry? Take for example Texas–Texas A&M, or Michigan–Ohio State. Which conflict is more heated? The intensity generated by rivalries remains at the highest level possi- ble in longtime feuds between Army and Navy, California and Stanford, Florida State and Miami—and many, many more. This is a must-read for the millions of die-hard college football fans who flock to sta- diums across the country every fall.
