It's hard to call something a rivalry when the series is so lopsided, but there's plenty of hate in the Sunflower State. Kansas holds a 187-92 all-time lead against Kansas State, and a 75-46 advantage on the Wildcats' home court. Wins are hard to come by for K-State, so it's a huge reason to rush the court when it happens. The Wildcats have beaten the Jayhawks just four times since 1994, with one of those wins coming this season in Manhattan.

Oklahoma owns the Bedlam series in football, but the basketball rivalry is a back-and-forth battle. Since the beginning of the Big 12 in 1996, the Sooners hold a 21-18 edge and lead the all-time series 131-95. OU swept the season series in 2013-14. It's a lopsided but heated rivalry in football, and Sooners fans like to remind the Cowboys of that record year-round. Oklahoma fans chanted "Little brother" and "Just like football" after upsetting then-No. 8 Oklahoma State in Norman in January.

These two basketball programs have a rich history, but rarely have both been among the nation's best at the same time. Only in the last decade have the they played each other when both are ranked. The Spartans have dominated the Big Ten under coach Tom Izzo with seven conference titles, six Final Four appearances, and the 2000 NCAA championship. But the Wolverines have come back to life the past few years, winning three in a row in this series, and playing in the national title game last season.

This one may not last much longer, so enjoy it while it lasts. Maryland will move from the ACC to the Big Ten next season which could mean the rivalry with Duke won't be played annually anymore. But is it a rivalry? Blue Devils fans don't think so, but anytime the Terps win one against Coach K it seems to be a reason to riot in College Park. It didn't happen this year though as Duke beat Maryland in its only meeting this season. The Blue Devils lead the series 110-63.

North Carolina and Duke aren't far apart, but Xavier and Cincinnati is an even shorter drive. The two campuses are separated by just 3 miles, and both are big-time basketball schools. But just because they're neighbors doesn't mean they get along. A brawl in the 2011 meeting forced the game to be called with 9.4 seconds left to play. Both benches cleared in an ugly scene that led to multiple suspensions. It doesn't get much more intense than that.

UCLA dominated college basketball in the 1960s and '70s with 10 national titles under legendary coach John Wooden. The 1980 and '90s belonged to Arizona when coach Lute Olson arrived in 1983. Olson won 11 Pac-10 regular season crowns and the 1997 national title before retiring in 2008. The two programs are still the best in the Pac-12 and annually among the nation's elite. The Bruins won the 2012-13 regular season conference title, and the Wildcats captured it this season. UCLA leads the series 41-36.

Hopefully this one will come back soon. Georgetown and Syracuse weren't on the schedule this season due to the Orange's move to the ACC. This was the arguably the best rivalry in the Big East for decades and the premier game to watch in the 1980s. A sellout crowd at Madison Square Garden witnessed Syracuse upset Georgetown in overtime in its final Big East meeting last season. But it may not be over forever. The two schools are reportedly working on a deal to continue the series.

Indiana has five national championships. Purdue is still searching for its first NCAA crown, but the Boilermakers lead the all-time series 113-88. The majority of Purdue's wins came prior to 1940, and the series has seen many long winning streaks by each program. If you need to know just how intense this rivalry is, ask former Indiana coach Bob Knight. His infamous chair-throwing incident came against the Boilermakers in 1985.

Kentucky vs. Lousivlle has the perfect ingredients of a great rivalry and more. The Wildcats beat the Cardinals in the Final Four en route of their 2012 national title. But Louisville made it back the following season to win it all. Rick Pitino, who has been on both team benches, intensified this rivalry. He coached UK from 1989-97 and won an NCAA title in 1996. After a short stint as coach of the Boston Celtics, he returned the the college game back in the state of Kentucky, but this time at Louisville.

Is there really any question? Two of college basketball's most historic programs stand less than 10 miles apart on Tobacco Road. UNC has five national titles and 18 Final Four appearances, while the Blue Devils are not far behind with four national titles and 15 Final Fours. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski is the NCAA Division I men's winningest coach, but the rivalry is so competitive and evenly matched that he is just one game above .500 in the series (39-38). UNC leads the overall series 133-104.
