11 US College Match-Ups I’d Like to See

I’m not much of a sports fan, but I am intrigued by the nicknames colleges give to their sports teams. Although many are uninspired (e.g., Bears, Beavers, and Bobcats), others provide great fodder for creative visualization, like this list of team match-ups I’d like to see.

Special thanks to Adam Joshua Smargon for his exhaustive online list of College Nicknames.
