Miami (Ohio)

Cincinatti (10-3), Northwestern (10-3), and UNC (8-4)
nice!

No. 103: Miami (Ohio)

UP NEXT

— Who is No. 102? This team's leading returning receiver attended the same high school as an astronomer who first presented the theory that the observable universe is continuously expanding.

That would be Hubble

so Hubble went to high school in Wheaton, Illinois.

Titus Davis (from Wheaton, IL) is the leading returning receiver for Central Michigan, but they were a bowl team last year, so I don't see them being this low on the list.

Looks like No. 102 is indeed Central Michigan.

UP NEXT

— Who is No. 101? On the list of the most populated cities in America, the city housing this university ranks one spot ahead of the largest city in the country's largest state and one spot behind a city with 29 skyscrapers.

Is that talking about Chicago? I don't see either NIU or NW this low on the list...

I'm guessing UT-San Antonio.

America's largest state is Alaska (by area). In the list of cities (http://www.ask.com/wiki/List_of_United_States_cities_by_population?o=2801&qsrc=999), Lexington, Kentucky is one spot ahead of it and Pittsburgh is one ahead of it. I'm guessing it's time for SEC, SEC - Kentucky.

That's it! Good job.

wikipedia said:
Pittsburgh, the second-largest city in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania, is home to 135 completed high-rises,[1] 29 of which stand stand at least 300 feet (91 m) tall.

Can you post the next one? I'm on a pad and it's difficult. Kentucky is officially correct. I like this and will be in town for a few days.

Who is No. 100? This program won as many games from 2004-7 as from 2008-12.

So, that leaves the Big Texas as the only remaining 'Power 5' conference, and probably the only remaining FBS conference, with nobody yet named?

SMU

Who is No. 98? This university's first president was not a pirate, though he was particularly fond of parrots.
Without doing anything other than word-association, I'd have to say ECU, but I am 99% certain that's wrong.

Sounds to me that Minnesota is batter up.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_McFadden
Incorrect, it's Cal. I think the clue might have been screwed up and it should have read that he taught there, not went to school. Minnesota made a bowl game last year and has an experienced qb. They're middle of the road B1G.

Here's the next one.

"— Who is No. 94? This university is a not a mainstream Division I school, according to the president of the NCAA."

That was too easy. Lonestar Jacket can relate to this one since I defended his other alma mater before.
