Distances and States

A whim inspired me to look up a few distances. (The incipient college football season may have played a roll, although not all of these schools play each other in that sport.)

Bowdoin College, Brunswick, ME to Temple University, Philadelphia, PA:
Distance: 432 miles
States Crossed: 7

Clemson University, Clemson, SC to Texas A&M University, College Station, TX:
Distance: 950 miles
States Crossed: 6

University of Missouri, Columbia, MO to University of Florida, Gainesville, FL:
Distance: 1,005 miles
States Crossed: 6

University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI to Gonzaga University, Spokane, WA:
Distance: 1,648 miles
States Crossed: 6

That is all. No larger point here.
