Living in the Chicagoland area, you undoubtedly know the nicknames of all of the Big 10 schools, even Rutgers, Maryland, a nd Nebraska. You can also probably recite the moniker for every team in your alma mater's conference.  Many might even add their school's rivalry game opponent to that list as well.
Test your knowledge of college athletics by taking this quiz and trying to match the school with their noted nickname. Que stions of nickname s are likely to come up at the Sports Trivia Night on Friday, June 16.
