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.

Saturday, Ohio State travels to New Jersey to take on Rutgers. Unfortunately, the experts don't believe it will be much of a challenge. That means this week's little quiz might be the most difficult test for fans of the Buckeyes.

Today's questions are based on Ohio State's past performances against Rutgers and some general knowledge about this week's foe.

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

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

Difficulty: 1st and goal from the 1
Last Week's Questions 

Where is Maryland's main campus located?
College Park....94%
Silver Spring....1%

The university was founded in 1856 and the main campus is located in College Park. Washington D.C. is close to four miles away from the main campus.

Zero. The schools first played in 2014 and the Buckeyes have won the first five in the series.

Last Week's Questions   

The founder of what athletic apparel company earned his degree from Maryland?
British Knights....0%
L.A. Gear............2%
Under Armour.....92%

Kevin Plank grew up playing football in a suburb of Washington D.C. He went to Fork Union Military Academy with the hopes of earning a D1 football scholarship. When that dream went unfulfilled, he enrolled at Maryland and decided to play as a walk on.

During Valentine's Day, Plank started a seasonal business that sold roses. He used the $3,000 from that seasonal start-up to launch Under Armour.

How many times has Maryland been ranked when playing Ohio State in football?

The Terrapins have never been ranked when playing Ohio State.

Last Week's Questions 

Can you name the Maryland basketball player that died shortly after being selected in the NBA Draft?
Len Bias..........76%

Jason Collier....8%
Hank Gathers...9%
Reggie Lewis...7%

Tragically, all four players mentioned above died way too young. However, Bias was the Maryland player who died two days after being selected by the Boston Celtics with the second overall pick of the 1986 NBA Draft.

What is the name of Maryland's mascot?

In what was the closest answer ever, you correctly identified Testudo as the name of Maryland's mascot by one vote.

The original statue of Testudo is located in front of McKeldin Library. The school has five duplicate statues throughout the campus including one at Maryland Stadium.

Last Week's Questions 

All-time, Ohio State averages just over ____ points per game against Maryland.

In the first five games, the Buckeyes have outscored the Terrapins 277-120. That is an average of 55-24.

Who is Maryland's head football coach?
DJ Durkin...........13%
Randy Edsall......3%
PJ Fleck..............0%
Mike Locksley...84%

Locksley was hired on December 4, 2018. He replaced DJ Durkin who was fired after Jordan McNair died from heat stroke. Locksley is a native of Washington D.C. and was Alabama's offensive coordinator. He also served as Maryland's interim head coach after Edsall was fired in 2015. An interesting note is that Edsall was fired the day after his team lost to Ohio State.

Last Week's Grade: C (70)

This quiz turned out to be more of a challenge than Maryland was for the Buckeyes on the field.

Living on the edge. The community was one vote away from earning a D this week. Feels like Ohio State's performance against Maryland last week.

In the end, all that matters is the correct answer was given and the community earned its third C of the season. Which is much better than receiving its second D.

I have a feeling that the Rutgers quiz will match the difficulty the Buckeyes will receive on the field on Saturday.

Remember, the correct answers and community grade for this week's Trivia Time will be revealed at the bottom of next week's quiz.

Overall Grade: C (79)
