Name the Big 12

Did you know that there are only ten schools in the Big 12 conference? I didn't. But if you knew that, you'll probably do well in today's Lunchtime Quiz at mental_floss. The challenge is to name all the Big 12 school in one minute. Good luck! Link

Nebraska and Colorado left th Big 12 over two years ago, Missouri and A&M left last year while West Virginia and TCU have joined the conference for the upcoming season.

There have been 10 schools in the Big 12 for not even a year. Colorado and Mizzou jumped ship but this just happened. It is pretty surprising that you wouldn't have heard that from even the most tertiary of ESPN watching, but it's extremely unlikely the conference will either keep this name or just absorb two new schools. The point is, the Big 12 housing only 10 schools is not trivia, it's a temporary fluke.

Despite the Roman numeral XII in its logo, the actual name of the conference is Big 12. Not Big XII. Not Big Twelve. And yes, there aren't 12 schools, just 10.

To make matters worse, there's a Big Ten Conference. Their logo is B1G. And before you say "huh?" There are 12 schools, not 10, in the Big Ten Conference!
