    1. Introduction
    Starting with NCAA Football 2003, EA Sports added rivalry mode to enhance the
    college football experience.  The purpose is to enhance some of the yearly games
    that have more on the line than just a win.  Sometimes it's a trophy that goes to
    the winner.  Sometimes, it's just bragging rights.  
    In the game, EA enhances rivalry games with special graphics and additional
    commentary that talks specifically about the rivalry.  Some of the smaller rivalries
    may not have as much commentary.  Also, many of the rivalries have trophies that you
    can display in your trophy case by winning the rivalry game with either team.
    2.  How to play rivalries
    There are two ways to play a rivalry game.  The first way is to select Rivalry Game 
    from the Game Modes menu option.  Once in rivalry mode, select the rivalry you wish to 
    play, select which team you want to play with, and play just like a normal exhibition game.  
    Also, you can play rivalries in Dynasty mode if the team you are coaching has a rivalry 
    game that occurs during the season.  In both instances, if you win the game, the 
    trophy (if there is one) is added to your trophy room.
    3.  Rivalries with Trophies
    EA has included many traveling trophies that can be won in a rivalry game.  This is not 
    a list of every college football trophy, but it is the ones you can win in the game.  In 
    the list below, there is the school, their rival, the historical record of the rivalry and 
    who is leading the series, the name of the game (if it has a special title), and the name 
    of the trophy you can win.  If there is no game title listed, then the game simply lists 
    it as "Rivalry Game".  Also, if a game title begins with "BF" it stands for "Battle for the..."

    4.  Rivalries without Trophies
    These are the rivalries in the game that do not have trophies that can be won.  
    Although some games list a trophy that the schools compete for, EA did not include 
    them in the game. Again, if there is no game title listed, then the game simply 
    lists it as "Rivalry Game".

    5.  Errors
    This section contains errors found in the rivalry listing.
    a) Military Acadamies
    The Commander-in-Chief trophy is given to the best service acadamy after the Army-Navy, 
    Army-Air Force, and Navy-Air Force football games.  Although Air Force has won the trophy 
    16 times (Army 6, Navy 5) and have won every year since 1996, it appears the game only 
    awards the trophy, for your trophy room, to the Army-Navy game.  Games with Air Force  are
    listed as "BF Commander-in-Chief Trophy", but the icon of the trophy does not appear.
    Thanks to everyone who enlightened me about this.
    6.  Closing
    I compiled this guide to create a single source for people to look at the rivalry portion 
    of NCAA Football 2004.  If you discover any errors in what is written and what the game 
    shows, please let me know.
    Do not contact me about the following:
    Why isn't this game listed as rivalry game?
    How come this trophy isn't shown?
    Why are there so many Big 10 trophies?
    Any gameplay questions.
