Two traditional powers, Alabama and USC, have agreed to play in the 2016 opener. The two squads haven't played since the 1985 Aloha Bowl.

Is it a crime that there are 29-year-olds on this planet that have never seen these two teams play? You bet...but better late than never I suppose...but are we neglecting some potentially great rivalries?

What other match ups between traditional powers would you like to see?
