Team rivalry

Team rivalry

Pairs of schools, colleges and universities, especially when they are close to each other either geographically or in their areas of specialization, often establish a college rivalry with each other over the years. This rivalry can extend to both academics and athletics, the latter being typically more well-known to the general public. These schools place an added emphasis on emerging victorious in any event that includes their rival. This may include the creation of a special trophy or other commemoration of the event. While many of these rivalries have arisen spontaneously, some have been created by college officials in efforts to sell more tickets and support their programs.

The "Critérium" of the Institut d'études politiques (IEP) is an annual multi-sport competition between the 9 IEPs. It is traditionally held on the last weekend of March with the host city changing every year. It is the occasion for the IEPs located in French regions to challenge the more prestigious IEP Paris (known as "Sciences Po"). A final opposing Paris to, for example, Lyon would see students from all over France cheering for Lyon, especially with the anthem "Province unie, tous contre Paris !" ("Province united, all against Paris !", the "province" being a somewhat pejorative term used to designate any place in France outside of Paris). The Paris students would respond by boasting their status as a Grande école and élite institution.Fact|date=April 2008

*Purdue University—The Shillelagh Trophy
*University of Miami—initially an easy win for the Irish, became a rivalry that was at its peak in the 80's and often held national title implications, until Notre Dame chose to end the series. See also: Catholics vs. Convicts.

Pac-10 Rivalries

The Pac-10 conference falls neatly into five regional pairings, leading to strong natural rivalries. Three of these pairs are cross-state rivals, one pair is within the same metropolitan region (San Francisco Bay Area), and one pair vies for bragging rights within the same city (Los Angeles).

*University of Washington and Washington State University— (football) for the Apple Cup

Other Pac-10 rivalries:
*University of Arizona and University of Oregon (football) An unofficial rivalry recently started by the resurgence of Oregon football on the BCS scene and Arizona's totally pathetic effort to defeat them in a game in which the Ducks are not weighed down by injuries. Fueled by Oregon commentators, calling Arizona fans "poor sports" and "tasteless victors", when Arizona fans celebrated a victory (2007) after Oregon quarterback, Dennis Dixon went down with an injury.
*University of California (Cal) and University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) (all sports) - The schools are the highest rated universities in the University of California system and compete in the biggest "intra-university" rivalry in the nation. Cal is also the "older brother" of UCLA as UCLA was the Southern Branch of the University of California. Because of UCLA’s origins with Cal, many Berkeley elements influenced the UCLA campus. Some UCLA traditions can be traced to the early 1920s, when the campus was known as the Southern Branch of the University of California.Fact|date=April 2008
*University of California (Cal) and University of Southern California (USC) (football) - This unofficial rivalry emerged in 2007 as the two teams became tied for the Pac-10 championship that year.Fact|date=April 2008
*University of Oregon and University of Washington— (football) an unofficial rivalry that has grown up between the two of the four programs in the Pacific NorthwestFact|date=April 2008
*Oregon State University and University of Washington— (football) similar to the Washington-Oregon rivalry, this game has become more important with Oregon State's recent resurgence in the college football world.
*Oregon State University and University of Southern California (USC) (football) - This unofficial rivalry started in 2006 when Oregon State Beavers played at home against the No. 3 USC Trojans, and upset them 33-31. In 2007, the No. 15 Trojans beat Oregon State 24-3 at home. In 2008, Oregon State upset the top-ranked Trojans 27-21. According to most sportscasters, Oregon State is considered "Giant Killers" whenever they upset higher ranked USC.

outheastern Rivalries

Universities in the Southeastern U.S., including those in the Atlantic Coast Conference, Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, Southwestern Athletic Conference, Southeastern Conference, Southern Conference, and Sun Belt Conference, have perhaps the most complex jumble of rivalries, many associated with annual football games, and often with colorful nicknames:
*Alabama State University and Alabama A&M University — "The Magic City Classic", played annually in Birmingham. ASU also has a long running rivalry with nearby Tuskegee University, "The Turkey Bowl" played each Thanksgiving Day.
*Auburn University and University of Georgia — "The Deep South's Oldest Rivalry"
*Auburn University and Louisiana State University (LSU) — budding SEC Western division rivalry
*Auburn University and University of Florida — historically one of the Southeastern Conference's longest rivalries, these SEC opponents were removed from annual competition during the 2002 scheduling decision to reduce permanent division opponents to one team. Auburn continued to play Georgia, while Florida kept LSU, much to the chagrin of older fans.
*Belmont University and Lipscomb University — two colleges in Nashville, Tennessee separated by 3 miles (5 km) of the same road; their basketball rivalry is known as the Battle of the Boulevard
*Bethune-Cookman University and Florida A&M University — the two MEAC schools compete annually in football in the Florida Classic.
*The Citadel and Virginia Military Institute— (football)The Military Classic of the South "The battle for the Silver Shako."
*Clemson University and University of South Carolina— this in-state rivalry has political and cultural origins and is one of the oldest rivalries in the South. See Carolina-Clemson Rivalry and South Carolina-Clemson brawl.
*Clemson University and Florida State University — The annual football matchup between the two schools has been known in recent years as the Bowden Bowl because Clemson head coach Tommy Bowden is the son of longtime Florida State head coach Bobby Bowden.Fact|date=April 2008
*Clemson University and University of Georgia — A rivalry between nearby schools that had national title implications in the early 1980s, but has been played less often since the SEC went to an eight-game conference schedule.Fact|date=April 2008
*Clemson University and North Carolina State University — The Textile Bowl.
*College of William & Mary and University of Richmond— known as the "Oldest Rivalry in the South" [] , this is the fourth oldest rivalry in college football, with the Tribe first battling the Spiders in 1890. The Tribe is up all-time, 59-52-5
*Duke University and University of North Carolina — The two schools are only convert|8|mi|km apart; the football teams play for the Victory Bell, which the winning team paints in their school's shade of blue. The basketball rivalry is one of the most high-profile in all of sports (see Carolina-Duke rivalry).
*East Carolina University and North Carolina State University — Two of the largest universities in the state of North Carolina. The football series between these schools was temporarily discontinued in 1987 after ECU played the game at NCSU's home field for 18 consecutive seasons. At the time, almost all of the attendance records for NCSU's Carter-Finley Stadium were set by games between the Wolfpack and Pirates. East Carolina offered to extend the contract on the condition some future games be played at the Pirates' home field. NCSU refused and contract negotiations were at an impasse. With the series set to potentially expire, East Carolina fans celebrated the 1987 victory by tearing down the NCSU's goal posts. A post-game altercation ensued between some fans on the field. NCSU privately attempted to renew the series despite the post-game incident, but ECU rejected the offer since it did not include any games in Greenville, NC. The series was canceled, which NCSU attributed to the poor behavior of ECU fans at the 1987 game. The rivalry resumed when both teams were invited to the Peach Bowl played on January 1, 1992. In an exciting game, East Carolina overcame a 17-point deficit in the 4th quarter to defeat NCSU 34-31. The financial success of the Peach Bowl spurred members of the North Carolina legislature to pressure both schools to resume the regular season football series with games to be played at both teams' home stadiums and neutral locations in North Carolina such as the stadium used by the NFL's Carolina Panthers in Charlotte. East Carolina defeated NC State 50-29 in the first game of the revived rivalry on November 30, 1996, in Charlotte, NC. NCSU holds the all-time series lead 15-10, the last game a 34-20 NCSU victory on October 20, 2007. Fact|date=April 2008
