How about Nittany Lions for 'mountain lions?' That is Penn State's mascot and they are definitely FBS (Big Ten Conference). Nittany is one of the two mountains that State College is located next to, so that's where the name comes from.

I second this. The name originated from Mt, Nittany Lions - allegedly from a student manager in early 1900s

I thought all turtles were edible. I got the answer, but the definition didn't seem specific to me. Fun quiz!

I mean... I thought the same thing. If I want to eat that turtle, I figure I can find a way. Pretty neat quiz, though.

As someone who has lived their entire life in Texas and the wife of a fighting farmer. I have to have to call out your definition for what someone from College Station/Las Cruces etc. is. I think "Slang for someone who farms or ranches" would be better. Your definition describes the institution which would be an "Ag" or "Ag School".

Too bad ISU isn't Bowl Subdivision, or QM could have included Bengals as well. Poor Poky :(

I suggest making "Thundering Herd" an acceptable answer for the clue "Bison" :)

Not so sure you can count that, there are many animals considered herds. Marshall just uses buffaloes as their mascot. But the name could reference to any animal that form herds. Examples; elephants, horses, sheep etc.
