The Huskie Bowl is an annual February tournament held at Northern Illinois University beginning in 2009. It is a revival of an annual tournament held at Northern in the 1990s, which disappeared after Answers Plus provided a set of questions that teams present had already heard. Huskie Bowl has again become a regular part of the Illinois circuit.

For 2010 and 2011, the tournament was split into "Lower" and "Upper" divisions of competition.

20 teams attended the first reincarnation of the Huskie Bowl, though 8 chose to leave at lunch. New Trier won the tournament on the last question, a tossup on the Book of Exodus, after going into the advantaged final down a match to Auburn. Ben Cohen of New Trier placed top individually. Stats can be found at [1].


In 2010, the Huskie Bowl used two divisions and expressed the expectation that all teams would stay for the afternoon. The upper division, a mirror of Prison Bowl, was won by Auburn A, a team playing as "Serenity," Detroit Catholic Central, and Loyola A. It served as a qualifier for PACE NSC, and achieved platinum level affiliation with that organization. The lower division, using an NAQT A set, was won by Auburn B, followed by Niles West, Boylan, and St. Charles East. It was affiliated with NAQT HSNCT.

Upper division stats can be found at [2];

Lower division stats are at [3].


The Huskie Bowl again used two divisions, this time mirroring the VCU/Vanderbilt set "ABC." Auburn A won the upper division, followed by Loyola A, Detroit Catholic Central, and Stevenson. The lower division was taken by IMSA B, Belvidere North A, Maine South, and Loyola B.

Upper division used a full round robin; stats are at [4];

The lower division used morning and afternoon pool play. Combined stats are here: [5].
