The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is home to the most underrated tandem that no one knows a damn thing about, Jake Sundberg and Scott Broussard.


The University of Louisiana at Lafayette Club for Academic Competition (which has to be the longest official name for any quizbowl organization) was founded by Matthew Hayes and another University of Louisiana student in September 2001. It has hosted an annual high school quizbowl tournament every fall since 2002.

The team has competed in NAQT sectionals every year since 2003, sometimes sending multiple teams, other times just sending one.

In 2006, the ULLCAC took home its first and only ever sectional title, winning the DII Southwest SCT with a record of 10-3, and advancing to NAQT ICT for the first time in its history.

ACF Tournaments Attended

ACF Fall 2006 was the ULLCAC's first official visit to any ACF tournament. The club had been unable to attend in the past due to the fact that its high school tournament was always run on the same day as ACF Fall.

ACF Fall 2006 at Vanderbilt: 8-6, tied for 7th place. Participating members include Jake Sundberg, Scott Broussard, Matthew Hayes, and Bryan Fontenot.

ACF Fall 2007 at Shorter College: 6-5, 16th place. Participating members include Jake Sundberg and Sumedh Deoras. Unfortunately, the team lost two round-robin matches on the last tossup, which pushed them from a spot in the "Championship Flight" to the bottom-third of an immense 21-team field.

2006 NAQT ICT: 5-8, 25th place.
