At the SR/College Football Play Index, we have a feature called the Rivalry Finder that you may not have seen before. Simply put, it will find the complete* history of head-to-games between any two schools.
(* = Within years both schools were classified as "major". To learn more about what that means, click here.)
So if you ever wanted to know how many times, say, Notre Dame and Alabama have faced off (and who won), just run this search in the Rivalry Finder:
