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.

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.
