    Wow that is a tough one. Duke vs. North Carolina is not even close to the other two.

    I would have to go with Michigan vs. Ohio State.

    The best rivalry in college football is NOT Ohio St. and Michigan in the paltry Big 10!

    The Red River Shootout between Texas and Oklahoma is the oldest and best rivalry in college football.

    If you have to go to a neutral spot just to play (Dallas), then thats a serious rivalry. Michigan and Ohio St. don't go to a neutral spot.

    Other rivalries:

    Duke/North Carolina (basketball)

    Florida/Georgia

    Celtics/Lakers

    Alabama/Auburn

    Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees I believe by one of the best rivalries. Duke vs. North Carolina 2nd and third those two.

    Living in the west coast I probably dont have much bias toward one paticular rivalry. Out of those three, here in the west coast, the Yanks-Red Sox ordeal is always a big deal, even if it doesn't affect any of our teams. Its just a good match up to see every year.

    Yanks-Red Sox is probably the best of all time in my opinion, due to the fact that it dates back to the day of the great bambino. This rivalry is MUCH older than that Pack-Bears Rivalry someone mentioned earlier.

    Historically, Michigan and Ohio State, and let me tell you something, it's not even close.

    Right now OU / Texas is probably the best due to the competitiveness, and Ohio State's domination of Michigan. But historically Ohio State and Michigan is THE greatest sports rivalry.

    Duke / UNC? haha, good one.

    Cross-town Classic: Chicago Cubs vs Chicago White Sox

    Chicago is torn asunder at the mere mention of one of these teams. Neighbors insult each other. Coworkers squabble. Couples break up.

    When they play against each other, the town erupts, and there is no place better to be in the sporting world.

    As someone who lives in NC....of these 3 choices, NC-Duke(basketball) is the biggest rivalry we have here. No offense to the other 2 choices, but Duke UNC is the it! Go Heels!!!!
