Bumper Stumper

I love the game show "Stump the Schwab" on the ESPN network (currently showing reruns on ESPN Classics). It airs every weekday at 1:00 and 1:30 pm. I regularly take my lunch break at that time, so I can tune in. Generally, I'm awed by the contestants' knowledge of sports trivia and I'm very proud of myself when I can think of an answer - I'd say that I know about 20% of the "trivia" - better at the football and tennis questions - worse at the basketball and baseball. But today I aced a category - it was in the final round, too. It was titled "Linebacker U" - questions about Penn State football. I could hardly contain my glee - and quickly hit the "record" button on the DVR. I got all the questions right - it was awesome.

They were great - let's see if I can remember...

1. What Butkus Award winner returned to play his senior year in 2006?

2. 2 Penn State linebackers caught 2 interceptions (each) in the 1987 Fiesta Bowl win over Miami, FL; name one.

3. This Penn State linebacker was elected to the National Football League Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility, 1988.
