WHEN IT COMES TO THE BEST RIVALRY SERIES NAMES IN COLLEGE SPORTS, WE'LL TAKE "THE GAME" FOR SHEER MAGNITUDE
Pittsburgh and West Virginia are gonna "knuckle up" tonight at 7pm on ESPN. (We can't shake the feeling that Pittsburgh could make the Final 4 this season.) They call Pitt vs. WVU "The Backyard Brawl," which is a pretty cool rivalry series name, especially if you've seen the two schools play football. Remember a few years ago when Pitt stopped Rich Rod and WVU from playing for the BCS Title? We digress. We decided to rank cool rivalry series names; we do realize that most of these are steeped more in college football tradition than college basketball tradition, but in many cases the application of the concept is true in both sports. E-mail us with ideas on the topic.
