Wh
ich former Sooner is now the starting center for the Cardinal?

Simmons remembered Chase Beeler well because "he used to read Time Magazine all day.” Beal and Franks also got the right answer. Lewis got his former OU centers confused, responding "Jesse White.” Murray recalled Beeler was in his class and knew he had blonde hair, but couldn’t remember his name.

6. Who is the most famous Stanford football alum, who won a pair of Super Bowls as the quarterback of the Denver Broncos?

Maybe the question was too easy. Everyone knew John Elway played at Stanford.

7. What does Stanford have on their helmets?

Broyles, Simmons, Murray and Franks correctly said "an S.” Beal, Jones and Lewis were on the right track, but incorrectly stated "a tree.”

8. What is the school’s mascot?

Franks, Jones, Lewis, Beal and Simmons got the right answer, a tree. Beal was more specific with "pine tree.” Murray guessed a cardinal.

9. What happened on the most famous play in Stanford history?

Easily the most difficult question. Only Franks, Simmons and Beal knew about the band being on the field at the end of the 1982 Stanford-Cal game. Extra credit goes to Simmons for noting Cal was the team that returned the multi-lateral kickoff return for a touchdown. Broyles guessed a "Hail Mary.” Murray said "beating USC.”

10. Who is Stanford’s coach?

Franks, Murray, Jones and Simmons knew Stanford’s coach is Jim Harbaugh. Lewis was close, but incorrect with "Harback.”
