States With Four Or More Teams

Postby Cane from the Bend » Thu Jul 12, 2018 6:44 am

.

Can you name all of the FBS teams from states that have 4 or more schools?

The quiz in the link below gives you 7 minutes to get all 68 team names:

They are diagrammed by state and conference alphabetized.

Hint ~ in North Carolina; Coastal Carolina is Not one of the answers.

That burnt me, and cost me the first time around, where I scored 67 of 68.

I got em all right the second time, with 1:17 left.

Lots of folks think that the Chanticleers are in NC rather than SC...

But a big clue about South Carolina is in their name...the Chanticleers.

Chanticleer is the name for a rooster or *..."How about that... Gamecocks ?"

Yeah, this can be tough with so many obscure schools tossed in. Both attempts for me, Kent St (MAC Ohio team) drained quite a bit of time. I wouldn't call Kent State an obscure team, per se. Though, while typing out all of those Ohio MAC schools in succession, remembering all 6 programs while you're on the clock can have you draw a blank.

The easiest states to run through for me, were, Indiana (obviously), Michigan, Florida, Illinois & California.

Having to spell out Louisiana Monroe and Louisiana Lafayette I found to be annoying. Mainly, because in the other challenges which include them, you need only type UL M & UL L (without spacing).

Also, with so many teams in Texas, it can be a little strenuous to recall North Texas, Rice, SMU & Texas St with time ticking away on you. And I could see how under the duress of the timer, recounting Middle Tennessee St (hint: you do not have to type in St or State) can task you.

Hey Derek, have you tried the Conferences by Map Location challenge. I bet you'd be pretty good at the SEC.

You have 2 minutes to try and name the school to it's location on the map.

The only drawback, is that there are no state lines. But if you know the general area of each team, you'll breeze right through them.

Just remember the northern most team is Missouri :wink:
