Quiz Bowl Team

Quiz Bowl has been called the "varsity sport of the mind." Teams play games consisting of two 10-minute halves by answering a variety of questions on literature, history, geography, government, the sciences, math, art, popular culture, and sports. 

Liberty's Quiz Bowl team has competed in the Big South Conference since 2006, winning the conference tournament 7 out of the past 8 years: in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, & 2013. In addition, Liberty has been undefeated in conference the past 3 years.

Our 2012-2013 teams competed in 5 tournaments: at Virginia Tech, the University of Maryland, the University of Virginia, Gardner-Webb University, and the University of Tennessee and earned notable victories over the following universities:
