More Info:
  • *For the purposes of this quiz, the Mountain West's Mountain Division is considered as its "East" (the other division is the West), despite technically not qualifying on name alone. See first comment for note on the ACC /Big 12.

    **The average stadium longitude was taken for each East/West division (or latitude for North/South), then each team's stadium was measured against that average. This quiz covers schools at least 3.5° in the "wrong" direction. See first comment for note on Hawaii.
