In the past several years there has been an influx of neutral-site games in the regular season. Some of these involve the same teams every year (or in the case of Navy-ND, every other year). Others have different teams each year.

So, what yearly rivalry games would you like to see played at neutral sites, and what stadiums would you like to see host two different teams every year?

For the former category, I'd like to see Indiana-Purdue in Indianapolis, SMU-TCU in Arlington, and Maryland-Rutgers in Philadelphia (to sort of serve as a public school version of the Army-Navy Game, both schools being close to one of the service academies).

I don't like neutral site rivalry games so I don't want to see any of them changed. Neutral site games like Alabama/Michigan, Georgia/Boise State, Virginia Tech/LSU etc. are great because they're good teams not normally playing each other meeting up once in a different location. But in my opinion rivalry games should be played in each teams home stadium, that atmosphere adds greatly to the rivalry and moving it elsewhere would take away from it.

Syracuse and Penn St. are playing each other at Metlife stadium. Nice to see a former rivalry get going again in a big time media location.

Texas Tech and Baylor play at Jerry World every year.

None should play each other on neutral sites other than the ones that already do(Georgia/Florida, Oklahoma/Texas, Army/Navy, etc).

I would like to see more teams travel. I hate how teams from the West/South never seem to travel up North later than September or so. I would love to see some of them have to play in the cold in the Big House or a place like that.

My stance pretty much, except for the kickoff classic.

The only problem with that is that most(if not all) Big Ten schools play all of their ooc games within the first month of the season, and have all conference games in October and November.

But, do you think a team from the south really wants to sabotage their season in order to make viewers up North happy?

Hell no. That's the thing, as long as the schools are scheduling there own games, this won't happen. Forever probably.
