Boston College–Syracuse rivalryBoston College–Syracuse football rivalry – This page only talks about football and nothing else. 71.33.162.230 (talk) 16:24, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Are there any other rivalries between the two schools? If not I don't think that we need to add football especially if sources do not include the term when discussing the rivalry.--174.93.164.125 (talk) 02:36, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Support Yes, this rivalry seems to be exclusive to football. Reversion to this name may be appropriate if other aspects of the rivalry are ever demonstrated. --BDD (talk) 17:08, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Compare to Michigan–Ohio State football rivalry. I'm sure fans of those teams still get excited when the teams meet in basketball, but football is the lynchpin of the rivalry. --BDD (talk) 17:12, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

This is a serious article?[edit]

There's no rivalry. They barely played each other over the past couple of decades. SkepticalRaptor (talk) 03:10, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Is this a serious question? Of course it is, considering the pages that exist for other rivalries (see Missouri-AnyoneintheSEC). It has almost 50 games played over 90 years, and it was annual from 1961-2004 and a huge Big East rivalry. It is annual again now that both teams are in the ACC Atlantic. Also three games over one decade isn't a lot, yes, but "couple of decades"? no, that would be 13 games over 20 years. Mushh94 (talk) 03:52, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Georgetown is a real rivalry. Notre Dame. Boston College? Hockey would work, if SU actually played men's hockey. SkepticalRaptor (talk) 17:39, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Notice the title of the article BC-Syracuse FOOTBALL rivalry. this isn't a general school rivalry. also, the rivalry pertains to both schools, not just if syracuse considers BC their rivals, but also if boston college considers syracuse their rivals.Mushh94 (talk) 21:33, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
