RE: Annual Football Series that Should Happen
Looks like you're most interested in non-P5 teams who really want to play local P5 teams. Out of the 32 matchups you chose, only 5 would be P5 vs. P5, and you omitted obvious old rivalry games including Oklahoma-Nebraska and Pitt-Penn State.

For non-conference games that "should" be played often, the test should be: Which non-conference games would neutral CFB fans, with no rooting interest for or against either team, want to see most? Even with that short list of games, it would be nice to see them, but teams *should* schedule who they want, rather than having anyone force teams to play each other.

UofA and A-state do not play against each other. It is foolish and totally UofA's fault.

There is nothing I love better than watching a MAC school beat a Big Ten school.

That said, Eastern Michigan and Michigan need not be an annual series.

23) Houston vs. Rice (Thanksgiving)

We played them 40 times over a 42 year period. The thing is when you are 29-11-0 all-time versus a school it kind of makes for a boring "rivalry" not to mention they bring nobody and our games there are their largest crowds of the year.

There is just no atmosphere.

If we are going to create something that does have some fire to it I would say Texas Tech Vs. UH

In all honesty we both have an inferiority complex about one thing or another and are closer on so many levels that this would create a healthy rivalry game.

Rice Zzzzzzzz
SMU Zzzzzzzz

Etc.

RE: Annual Football Series that Should Happen
The Following Should be Annual Games:

Arkansas vs Texas (too much interest to stop)

Texas vs Texas A&M (Any game where a mascot is stolen and barbecued has to be saved)

Arkansas vs Oklahoma (too natural of a rivalry to pass up)

Michigan vs Notre Dame (It just should be.)

Auburn vs Tennessee (Was an annual until '92)

Auburn vs Florida (Was an annual until '92)

Auburn vs Georgia Tech (Was the South's oldest rivalry unitl 1978)

Penn State vs Pittsburgh (Should never have ended)

Pittsburgh vs West Virginia (Such a fine clash of cultures located so closely to one another)

Virginia Tech vs West Virginia (Those who wish they could burn couches versus those who actually do.)

Florida vs Miami (Because no P school should get to dodge another in state P school.)

Alabama vs Georgia (because I love seeing either one lose)

California vs Brigham Young (PC versus Fundamentalism a must see where Palpatine can feel the hate flowing through them both.)

Missouri vs Kansas (What else do they have?)

Florida State vs Penn State (should be called the Scooter Chair Memorial)

Tennessee vs West Virginia (The Bitcruncher Classic and should be catered by Jack Daniels and George Dickel.)

Nebraska vs Oklahoma (Just because some things should never have been screwed with!)

Texas vs North Carolina (For the Nose in the Air Trophy)

Alabama vs Notre Dame (Because the Nation always roots for a tie with serious injuries on both sides.)

Clemson vs Georgia (Because there has never been any love here.)

Miami vs L.S.U. (Because Florida hates playing L.S.U. and the cultures of these two cities would make for the wildest home and home if the LSU game was played in New Orleans and Miami's in the Orange Bowl). Hells bells, I'd go!

Georgia Tech vs Purdue (Because if something is going to get built it will get built well if these two are involved and besides at least engineers would care.)

Ole Miss vs Stanford (Old South meets the Mob. Can you imagine the challenge to manners that would occur if the Stanford Band dropped by for tailgating in the Grove?).

Well that should at least give us a good start and something to look forward to every year!

Five stand out

1 Texas vs Texas A&M
2 Nebraska vs Oklahoma
3 West Virginia vs. Pitt
4 Kansas vs Missouri
5 Pitt vs Penn State

I agree Notre Dame should play a B1G East opponent annually (Michigan, Michigan State mostly, but also Ohio State or Penn State now and again), but it doesn't really matter which, so long as it is one of them.

Don't care much about P5 vs G5 rivalries. Not going to worry about those, they are done. Just a couple stragglers left, and only one, Navy vs Notre Dame, has solid economic value.

RE: Annual Football Series that Should Happen
Any state, that has only 2 P5 schools total that are in 2different P5 conferences, should play each other every year.

Some already do like
Iowa-Iowa St
South Carolina-Clemson
KY-Louisville
Ga-GT

Some don't like
PSU-Pitt

Well, I think that is it. PSU-Pitt are the only P5 schools in a state with 2 P5 teams that don't play each other every year.

Not Kansas-Missouri. One criterion should be, would the game get better TV ratings than a conference game between two average P5 teams. Pick two teams that were about average last year. Georgia-Kentucky, TCU-Texas Tech, whatever. The other four games you listed pass that test. A Kansas-Missouri football game does not.
