_Giganotosaurus_ and _Carcharodontosaurus_ are both allosauroids, and known
fossils indicate that they could reach the size of _Tyrannosaurus_ or bigger.
_Saurophaganax_ is, IIRC, only known from a portion of a single vertebra,
which indicates it was bigger than typical _Allosaurus_; I would have to say
that too little is known to say whether the entire animal would have been
larger than the largest known _T. rex_.
