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 11 out of the past 13 years: 2006-2008, 2010-2013, and 2015-2018. Liberty went undefeated in conference from 2010-2013 and 2015-2018.

Our 2017-2018 teams competed in 6 tournaments: at the University of Virginia (twice), NC State University, Virginia Tech, the University of North Carolina, and High Point University. Presented here are the team's victories at each venue.


Join the Team

Dr. Jim Nutter, the coach of our Quiz Bowl team, is always searching for new players, so if you have a quick mind and wide base of knowledge, please contact him for a tryout. Practices and scrimmages are 90 minutes long and are held in a conference room near the Honors Office on Tuesday and Thursday nights.

For more information, please email the coach, Dr. Jim Nutter, at jhnutter@liberty.edu.
