Upsets roll the field in NCAA rivalry weekend
Generic Football
An eccentric collection of almost ancient trophies ranging from the Golden Egg awarded to the winner of the Ole Miss versus Mississippi State game to the Platypus given to the winner between Oregon and Oregon State, along with bragging rights for the year, were on the line as college football’s greatest rivalries took center stage in the final week of the NCAA regular season. Storied games, featuring names such as “Clean, old-fashioned hate,” “Bedlam” and “Farmageddon” have been pitting inter- and intra-state rivals against one another for more than 100 years and every year means something to the schools involved.
