No one outside of Alabama gives two shits about this game. It will be another slaughter and the stands will be empty by the end of the third quarter. Gimme the Egg bowl over any of the other rivalry's this week.

It's all about money. MSU/OM fans are interested in the Egg Bowl, but outside of that, it really doesn't mean much to the average fan. On the other hand, when mentioning the great rivalries, the Iron Bowl is always mentioned. We just got back to #2. This helps us clinch the West. I agree that this year, the Egg Bowl will be a more exciting matchup. But I doubt it would bring in as much $$$ as the Iron Bowl would.

Agreed, OM/MSU is certainly going to be a much better game...but for CBS it's about $$$ and the number 2 ranked team is going to bring in more viewers than two unranked teams.
