The University of Pennsylvania is NOT a public university; it is a private institution- Ivy League, nonetheless. The University of Pittsburgh is the second-largest public university in the state of Pennsylvania. Also, Rutgers University is the flagship state university of New Jersey, which was not on the quiz. Also, UCLA would probably be a better school to use for California, as it is the largest college in the state. Also Hawaii-Hilo for Hawaii, Alaska and Alaska-Anchorage for Alaska, Georgia Tech for Georgia, Purdue for Indiana, Louisville for Kentucky, UMBC for Maryland, UMass-Lowell for Massachusetts, Minnesota State for Minnesota, UNLV for Nevada, NJIT for New Jersey, SUNY-Albany for New York, North Dakota is the Fighting Hawks, SC State for South Carolina, Memphis or Tennessee State for Tennessee, Texas Tech or Texas A&M for Texas, UW-Milwaukee for Wisconsin, Marshall for WV, and Virginia Tech for Virginia. All of the above universities are NCAA Division I, so they'll be okay.
