We have a few teams some fans care a little more about but nobody on our schedule gets the blood boiling. Hopefully some day soon that changes. I think the closest we've come to a rivalry series since 2011 has been Northwestern, at least as far as the scoreboard goes. Minnesota is close, with the added fun/silliness of The Chair. Iowa would be a natural rivalry with the border, but a rivalry benefits from competitiveness, and they've beaten us five straight. Same with Wisconsin - we haven't beaten them since 2011. There's some potential for rivalries. But mostly the failure to build anything like it has come from our end. Quote Link to comment
