Welcome to Trivia Time, the community quiz that will unequivocally prove how smart the community is...or not. We believe that Eleven Warriors is home to the most knowledgeable Buckeye fans on the planet. It is now time for you to prove it.

Below, you will find 10 questions. The answer with the most votes for each question will be the "community answer". The answers and community grade will be revealed at the bottom of next week's Trivia Time.

There's a MAC attack on the horizon. To help you deal with the anxiety that is building up inside your soul, Trivia Time is here to distract you from your fears. Hopefully you show that your Buckeye knowledge is strong enough to get picked at recess. If not, it's off to the RedHawks with you. 

Today's questions are based on the Buckeyes' past performances against Miami (Ohio), RedHawk general knowledge and the Cradle of Coaches.

In between this week's questions, you will find the results of last week's Trivia Time based on the Ohio State and Indiana series.

Two simple rules: Please use your brain (not a search engine) and only play once.

Difficulty: 1st and goal from the 1
