"I'll try Illinois FCS for $200, Alex"

Both the Illinois FCS programs and Jeopardy champion James Holzhauer are on breaks right now.

With spring practice over and the next camps not scheduled to begin until the heat of summer, the state's four teams have some time away from the field. Meanwhile, Naperville native Holzhauer has a two-week hiatus while a teachers tournament fills the airwaves. He will return to TV May 20 with a string of 22 straight wins and $1,691,008 in winnings.

So, with all this in mind, it's time for a Jeopardy-style version of Prairie State Pigskin. Try your hand at these questions. Answers will be posted tomorrow.
