UW Vs. UO: The Nation's 'Most Underrated Rivalry'?

Ted Miller of ESPN.com’s Pac-10 blog writes in a mailbag today that the football rivalry between the University of Washington and the University of Oregon is the “most underrated rivalry in the nation”.

As for finding ways to market other rivalries, I agree, particularly with Oregon-Washington. To me, that is the most underrated rivalry in the nation, though it lost some luster when the Huskies went into the toilet from 2004-2008. But all you have to do to get a sense for the bitterness is to read the comments section from the Pac-10 blog, where a story about Stanford’s special teams can degenerate into barb trading between Ducks and Huskies.

After reading this post from earlier today, it’s hard to argue with Miller’s point.
