Since the college football bowl system started back in 1902 with the Rose Bowl, Illinois has played in 18 total bowl games. Your mission (if you choose to accept it) is to list the names of every bowl game the Illini have played in.

For those of you that regularly attend football games in Memorial Stadium, the answers have been on display for you since 2011 when banners were placed around the stadium from each of the bowl games (they even include the year those games took place).

You have three minutes to list all 18 bowl games. Keep an eye open for a few “bonus” answers we’ve hidden in the quiz! Post how many you were able to get in the comment section below, but PLEASE don’t spoil the answers for anyone that hasn’t taken the quiz yet.

Here’s a link to today’s quiz:
