A rivalry game should require a premium ticket price and should cause visiting fans to travel. A ticket to the NC State game in Death Valley costs the same price as a ticket to the Syracuse game and NC State could bring all of heir fans in two tour buses.

As a WMU fan, I agree. UT is definitely a name that WMU fans wake up to outside of Central Michigan. They - not CMU or NIU - are often regarded as the wall having to knock-down to get the Championships. I wish it was recognized as a 'rivalry.' Michigan/Minnesota have a rivalry trophy (in regards to the Big 10, which match-ups don't have a rivalry is the big question), no reason WMU/UT shouldn't.

But yah, it's not in the same category as WMU/CMU.

The modern series dates only to 1993, but our fan bases have the scars to prove you right.

They're mandatory? Like US law?

It's not a federal law, but it is implicit in the CINC trophy requirements.

To have played AFA every year since the early '70s, Army and Navy must care about the trophy, and thus their games with AFA. Navy in particular must care, now that 8 of their games are devoted to AAC opponents and they're still scheduling AFA. Army did the same during its time in C-USA. And AFA must care, especially since they've been in a conference so long but are willing to use up two OOC games every year to play schools on the Atlantic coast. So I think both rivalries with AFA qualify as essential, even if not especially heated.

There was a rather largish gap in play after the SWC fell apart.

I second this. Makes no sense to list Toledo/Bowling Green and Miami/Ohio as Essential, and then list WMU/CMU as Essential? with a ?

I'm just asking because I'm unsure. This isn't meant to offend any fans of the teams in question.

For a rivalry with a name like that, WKU and MTSU haven't been great about actually playing it in recent history.

Probably a one-sided rivalry. But, I wouldn't consider Clemson & NC State rivals. To me, Clemson's rivals are South Carolina, Georgia Tech, and FSU. You have a dormant rivalry with my Dawgs.
NC State's rivals are: UNC, East Carolina, and Wake Forest.

OK, but I'll note that of 42 voters at the moment, only 9 have chosen CMU/WMU.
