ESPN’s Top 10 ‘Grudge Matches’ in 2010
Well, ESPN’s Mark Schlabach has it right for sure in putting the Nebraska/Texas game in Lincoln Oct. 16 at the top of a list of grudge matches in the upcoming football season (http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/columns/story?columnist=schlabach_mark&id=5373180). This game has the makings of all that is good with college football. Nebraska’s move to the Big 10 — because of Texas I might add — national implications, played in Lincoln, payback, a deep hatred for Texas anyway among Nebraska fans, and the list goes on.
Schlabach’s final nine of the top 10 games include USC at Stanford, Florida at Alabama, BYU at Utah, Michigan at Purdue, Virginia Tech at Miami, Pittsburgh at Cincinnati, Miami at Ohio State, Iowa at Northwestern and Florida at Florida State.
I would probably add one more to the list: Nebraska at Texas A&M. The game could have huge implications on the Big 12 conference race and the national picture.
