I got a great question in Friday's Chat from Tom in Los Angeles about rivalries I'd love to see take shape on the field. I gave the question a little more thought and decided to turn it into this week's list -- the top 10 "should be" rivalries in college football:

1. Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Boise State Broncos

Attached to the Broncos' storybook rise to the sport's elite has been a feeling that they've also become one of the most polarizing topics in college football. No fan base seems more offended by Boise State hype than the SEC crowd, which feels as if most of the Broncos' success has come against suspect competition. What better way to prove that they belong than by taking on the SEC's resident super heavyweight, Alabama? Watching the Crimson Tide on Boise's blue "Smurf Turf" would be a fantastic spectacle.
