Yale University is a private institution located in New Haven, Connecticut.

Each year the club usually hosts two high school tournaments: one in the fall, FAcT (Fall Academic Tournament), which uses NAQT questions, and one in the spring, BHSAT (Bulldog High School Academic Tournament), which is house-written. It also usually hosts two college tournaments every year.

Yale won the NAQT DII ICT in 2002. Though the club grew stagnant for several years thereafter, the emergence of Richard Mason and John Lawrence as strong players, and the acquisition of Stanford veteran Kevin Koai, helped to greatly strengthen it from 2009 forward.

Led in scoring by Matt Jackson, Yale won several national titles from 2011 to 2014. Its fortunes revived a few years later when, led by Jacob Reed and Stephen Eltinge, it garnered back-to-back ICT titles in 2018 and 2019. The 5 titles it won during this period made it the most successful college quizbowl club of the 2010s.
