What is the most played college basketball rivalry?
The most contested rivalry in division I men's basketball is between Oregon State University and the University of Oregon. It was played 331 times before the conclusion of the 2009 season.
The series has been played so often because of the close proximity of the campuses (45 miles), the relative isolation from other potential opponents in the days before long distance travel was common, and the long histories of each program (they first played one another in 1903). In fact, the six most played series in college basketball are all contests between Pacific Northwest schools:
1. Oregon State vs. Oregon, 331 games
2. Oregon vs. Washington, 284 games
3. Oregon State vs. Washington, 283 games
4. Oregon State. vs. Washington State, 278 games
5. Oregon vs. Washington State, 276 games
6. Washington vs. Washington State, 267 games
7. Kansas vs. Kansas State, 266 games

I know Nate Robinson played football and basketball for University of Washington, a major D1 school, so you must be able to. It surely must be difficult since college football ends around December for most teams and basketball starts at the beginning of November, so how he did it I don't know. But he did.

The Ohio State-Michigan Rivalry is considered the most intense rivalry. Alabama vs. Auburn - The Iron Bowl... consider... the game was not played for nearly forty years because of a dispute over per diems for the players. Alabama holds the series lead 39-28 (and a few meaningless ties) Very good rivalry but, of all the ones I've actually witnessed with my own two eyes, Clemson(ACC vs.South Carolina (SEC) takes the cake. I'm a Big Ten…
