Nittany Lion Novice is a high school tournament held at Penn State every autumn. It was started in 2015 by Ben Herman and Victor Prieto as an easy, accessible tournament for central Pennsylvania Schools, and way to get the Penn State team to start hosting events again. Despite isolation geographically, small field sizes, and having to move around the calendar a bit based on the college football schedule, the event has been able to get a few new schools involved with quizbowl. NLN served as the season opener for pyramidal events in Pennsylvania 2017 and 2018.
