Don't follow sports at all, professional or college, but got a 6 on the back of a couple I knew or was able to deduce and a few that were lucky guesses.

I don't understand the Connecticut one at all, but got all the others easily. Can anyone help me on that? UConn and Washington have never been in the same conference, or had any relationship at all, as far as I can tell.

Had a hard time with that one also, so is Northern Illinois also accepted as well? That is the other D-1 football team with huskies as their mascot.

I didn't get it because I was saying Northern Illinois.

I originally put in Northeastern but then remember it's football and they don't have a football program anymore.

I'm a Husky fan (Washington) so I immediately made the connection. Washington is to Pac as Kansas is to Big wasn't too difficult, either. Good quiz--got me thinking.

That was the only one I didn't get. Only pieced it together when I saw the answer. Very tough, especially because Georgia and Mississippi State are both SEC teams and reasonably close to each other. Thought it was some historical or rivalry connection.

I went with this thought process as well, as I didn't catch on at all about the nicknames at all. I got it by accident just by typing in every imaginable rivalry on the east coast...took a flyer and guessed the DC version.

I knew the blue turf was in Idaho, so I tried Idaho State but blanked out on Boise.

Could Jason White be acceptable as well for the Baker Mayfield one? He also won the heisman as a qb for Oklahoma.

I was confused since both Leinart and Palmer went to USC. I was trying to think of who else from Oklahoma won the Heisman.

I'm very proud of myself for the georgia/mississippi st question. I can't believe that there isn't another BCS team that are the Huskies.
