College football is great, and one of the greatest selling points are the iconic rivalries throughout the sport.

The Game between Ohio State and Michigan, the Paul Bunyan Trophy up for grabs in Michigan vs. Michigan State, the Axe between Wisconsin and Minnesota and the Floyd of Rosedale Trophy – given to the winner of the game between Iowa and Minnesota – are just a few of the iconic games in the B1G.

Across the country, the Iron Bowl between Alabama and Auburn, the Bedlam Series featuring Oklahoma and Oklahoma State and the Red River Rivalry featuring Texas and OU are some of the iconic games of college football. Unfortunately, one rivalry will not live through conference realignment.

According to Brett McMurphy with the Action Network, the Bedlam Series will not continue once the Sooners officially join the SEC. It is a blow to a rivalry that dates back to 1904.

In 1904, the Sooners won the first-ever meeting 75-0, still the largest victory in the series. Oklahoma leads the all-time series 90-19-7, but Oklahoma State captured the 2021 matchup, 37-33.

We’ll see if any other rivalries get the axe, or at least get moved out of annual status during the period of realignment. USC and UCLA entering the B1G will have a shakeup to the conference schedule.
