"state name" = tech

after typing in:

if you type in 'st' and then longer state names like Oklahoma and Mississippi you get both the university of and state. Also works for Georgia/tech but not arkansasst or kansasst due to the double s.

The quiz description says to use the school name, so the US Service Academies should be updated to have more formal type-ins accepted. I tried "US Air Force Academy" and "West Point" as school names that did not work.
