1. Alabama-Auburn
Series history: Alabama leads 42-35-1. First game was in 1893.
Buzz: Alabama has played Tennessee more often than it has played Auburn, and Auburn has played Georgia more often than it has played Alabama, but so what? "The Iron Bowl" takes the cake for plain outright nastiness in any U.S. sports rivalry. Browns-Steelers, Red Sox-Yankees, Celtics-Lakers, even Michigan-Ohio State -- those are akin to kindergarten kids fighting over a juice box compared to Alabama-Auburn. There are no pro sports in Alabama to take the spotlight off these programs, so you can bet fans lord a win over their archrival's fans 24 hours a day for 364 days. The teams met 12 times between 1893 and 1907, but not again until 1948; they have played every season since. As for its importance? The winner of this game has played in each of the past five national-title games.
