The rivalry between Alabama and Ohio State seems to be growing.

Although Alabama and Ohio State aren’t slated to play each other this season, a rivalry between the two programs seems to be brewing. 

OSU receiver Michael Thomas went to Twitter to vent his frustrations over where his Buckeyes are currently ranked within the College Football Playoff standings — and how he feels Ohio State should be given a chance to be within the top four. 

Thomas also blasted the Crimson Tide, posting its schedule and questioning as to why Alabama is ranked as the No. 2 team in the country. 

While he deleted those tweets (per Bleacher Report), Alabama defensive back Cyrus Jones went to Twitter and posted a shot of his own. Ohio State will not be playing this weekend in the Big Ten Championship Game. Instead, Michigan State will square off against Iowa. 

The back-and-forth between the two athletes surely will ruffle the feathers of some in Tuscaloosa and Columbus.
