Great quiz! I suggest rewording the question about the football team rivalry to ask for the name of the team. The name of the university is the University of Alabama, not Crimson Tide. If you'd rather not rephrase the question, please accept Alabama Crimson Tide as a correct answer as well. Thanks!
