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 hosts Jimmy Franklin and his band of kitty cats as a 19-point favorite. It might be surprising to some that the margin is that large, especially when the Buckeyes won the last two games in the series by one point. However, if you do some digging, Ohio State has dominated the school from Pennsylvania three out of the last four times the game was played in Columbus.  

Today's questions are based on Ohio State's past performances against Penn State 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 Rutgers.

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

Last Week's Grade: A+ (100)

Ohio State had an easy time on the field, and the community aced this quiz. 

Following a week in which the community was a vote away from a D, you guys come through with the second perfect score of the year. It appears that Rutgers doesn't have shit on Buckeye nation.

Through 10 weeks, there have been three A's earned, three B's, three C's and a D. All in all, not bad. 

I have a feeling that this week's quiz might be a reflection of the challenge the team will face against the Nittany Lions. You'll have to earn your A this time.

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