#2 – Duke-UNC
Let’s get this straight. Duke and North Carolina are two of the most storied college basketball programs in the nation. Hands down two of the best ever. That said, it’s absolutely ridiculous how this game gets treated like the Yankees-Red Sox, with every network who broadcasts college hoops thinking the entire country is just as enthralled by the Tobacco Road rivalry as those in the Carolinas. When the Blue Devils and Tar Heels meet up, it’s as if the rest of the basketball world just stops.
