Apart from marketing fluff in one article on the South Florida website, absolutely no indication this is a rivalry much less a significant one, fails WP:GNG. SportingFlyer T·C 02:49, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

  • Delete. Can confirm. dibbydib 💬/ 03:47, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep. Per the reference provided in this article that proves a rivalry. UnderMyHead (talk) 04:08, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
  • The article which has a phone line to purchase tickets at the bottom? SportingFlyer T·C 04:15, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
I have stricken UnderMyHead's "keep" vote. The user is a sockpuppet that has a history of creating dubious rivalry articles and has been indefinitely blocked. Cbl62 (talk) 02:45, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete Fails GNG, perhaps WP:TOOSOON. UW Dawgs (talk) 04:40, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete per nom. Jweiss11 (talk) 04:47, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete We're talking about two schools that have never been in the same conference and don't play with anything approaching regularity pbp 04:48, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete per WP:NRIVALRY. This series between two teams does not rise above the notability threshold for rivalries. Hog Farm (talk) 05:14, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

  • Delete Only six all-time meetings on the field here, most of them lop-sided in favor of Miami. The only source that uses the word "rivalry" to describe the series between these two schools is a non-independent piece on USF's own website. Fails WP:GNG.

  • Delete per above. Vorbee (talk) 07:28, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete. Lacks coverage in independent, reliable sources as a rivalry. Nor does it have other the indicia of a rivalry or historically important series. There is no length of play (first game 14 years ago), no frequency of play (6 total games), no regularity (no game since 2013, none planned til 2025), no trophy, and lack of competitiveness (Miami by at least 20 points in 4 of 6 games). 12:18, 18 November 2019 (UTC) Forgot to sign. Belatedley adding signature now. Cbl62 (talk) 17:30, 19 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete. The article would need more independent sources which would help establish that these two teams have a notable rivalry. --Metropolitan90 (talk) 13:04, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete lacks coverage as a rivalry. Would like the details to get included into a team page, thanks for the enthusiasm!--Paul McDonald (talk) 15:53, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete per all of the above. Simply not notable. No Great Shaker (talk) 22:46, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete this isn't an actual rivalry. Lepricavark (talk) 05:53, 21 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete - no evidence that a rivalry exists here. The fact that two teams have played each other on a (semi-) regular basis does not inherently mean they have a rivalry -- ChrisTheDude (talk) 10:36, 21 November 2019 (UTC)
