While the criteria isn't given (as doublee noted) I think Texas/Oklahoma didn't make it cuz it has been relevant since the beginning of time...locally and nationally.

The "newness" of the rivalry is from the less dominant team rising a little...I think. Nebraska OWNED K State prior to the last decade.

Good call on V Tech-Miami even though it has lost a little luster the last year or two.

Ohio State - Penn State is another good one. Look at the series since the Lions joined in 1993...

1993 Ohio State 24 Penn State 6 (played in a snowstorm...I was there)
1994 Penn State 63 Ohio State 14 (I try to forget this ever happened)
1995 Ohio State 28 Penn State 24
1996 Ohio State 38 Penn State 7
1997 Penn State 31 Ohio State 27
1998 Ohio State 28 Penn State 9
1999 Penn State 23 Ohio State 10
2000 Ohio State 45 Penn State 6

and then things really heated up...

2001 Penn State 29 Ohio State 27
2002 Ohio State 13 Penn State 7
2003 Ohio State 21 Penn State 20
2004 Ohio State 21 Penn State 10
2005 Penn State 17 Ohio State 10
2006 Ohio State 28 Penn State 6 (PSU led 3-0 late in the 3rd and only lost in the final minutes of the game)
