    Texas-Texas A&M and Nebraska-OU are the two that stick out to me.

    The Legacy of Dan Beebe. Ruining these two rivalries.

    Had the ACC kept Maryland and added WVU during the last realignment , ACC would be a lot more interesting in that region of

    WVU
    UVA
    VT
    Maryland
    Pitt
    BC
    SU

    ACC ALMOST had an even better group of rival games old and new. Would have had 4 old ones just by adding WVU.

    Seems like Texas is to blame for all of them.

    I don't think Va Tech joins the ACC if WVU had. From what I have heard from friends and family that attended Va Tech, the hatred for WVU runs that deep that the AD said they would never play @ WVU again.

    Arkansas - A&M was good for awhile too. Had a stretch in the 80s where that was the game for the Cotton Bowl in the old Southwest

    Of course I try to find a link and instead find that the two schools have a Home and Home schedule for 2021 and 2022. It does say that Va Tech was not interested in a Home and Home two paragraphs before that though.

    Missouri vs Kansas


    Wait we have to care before it can be a rivalry correct? Guess that game doesn't count.

    They play again now in the SEC West. Not that I would call it good.

    I guess gotta give credit to Texas for restarting one.

    The fans of the two schools have to care for it to be a rivalry.

    What about Georgia-Clemson?

    Florida-Miami

    Now I can go way back...but some pretty decent rivalries
    used to be...

    VPI-VMI (Turkey Day Game)

    Syracuse-Penn State was big-time important

    Boston College-Holy Cross

    kansas is so butthurt about Mizzou going to the SEC it won't schedule that game anymore, fans be damned
