WHEN IT COMES TO THE BEST RIVALRY SERIES NAMES IN COLLEGE SPORTS, WE'LL TAKE "THE GAME" FOR SHEER MAGNITUDE

What is "All-World Power Rankings?"

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.
