National championships None

Penn State is a quizbowl team from the university of the same name in State College, PA. The original team dissolved at Penn State in 2005. After a period of dormancy, the team was revived in 2009, eventually returning Penn State to a fully active presence on both the high school and collegiate circuits.

History

In the 1990s, Penn State hosted Nittany Bowl. Until around 1995, this was done with packet submission CBI-style questions, but was replaced by mACF questions at some point. In 1998, the tournament used one of NAQT's first invitational series. Penn State hosted at least one incarnation of the Wild Cat Invitational (it certainly happened in 2002), and hosted the second TRASHionals in 1999.

A poorly received 2013 high school tournament known as "Penn State Invitational" received scorn due to a weird power-matching format which caused some teams to play each other four times over the course of a ten round tournament.

More recently, Penn State has hosted a series of high school tournaments, starting with Nittany Lion Novice in December 2015. These invitationals have been the only known high school tournaments to draw a field of more than five in the Central Pennsylvania area in several years.
