Always A Solid Prank

I have five DVD copies of Friday Night Lights' final season to give away. The fifth and final season (buy it here has already aired on DirecTV, but the DVD goes on sale today and begins on NBC on Friday, April 15. Season 5 does not disappoint and is as strong as any other in the show's history. I won't give anything away, but the two things that stand out the most are the way old favorites are brought back throughout the season and the last episode. Most shows completely butcher their series finale. Not FNL. It was perfect in every way. Anyway, the first five people to answer these questions correctly will get the DVD. Please use the form below submit your answers.

1. In Season 1, Episode 9, Matt goes on his first date with Julie. What kind of (brand name) jacket did he wear?

2. What college did Tim Riggins attend before dropping out?

3. What was the name of Landry's band?

4. Which two cast members have I interviewed for SI.com. (I'll take characters or actors names)

UPDATE: DVDs are gone. Winners have been e-mailed. Answers were 1) Members Only; 2) San Antonio State; 3) Crucifictorious; 4) Minka Kelly and Zach Gilford.
