  • Question marks (as in “NAQT Collegiate Novice??”) indicate degree of guesswork/uncertainty because no information/announcement has been posted yet.

  • Summary displays all of the season’s known tournaments at a glance, binned by week. All information is subject to change. Symbols: º = at least one online mirror; ª = at least one mirror not on Saturday; * = at least one cancelled mirror (not counted in totals); † = set content is not confirmed clear until at least this week; active mirror period; early online playtest mirror; bold = at least 5 mirrors during this week.

  • EBOL is an inchoate idea for a “detailed stats league” for college quizbowl. The idea for EBOL is that participating sets will cooperate with Ophir and conform to a relatively consistent direction (such as distribution, difficulty, eligibility, rules, and format). At the end of the regular season, detailed stats from all tournaments will be compared and outstanding achievements will be recognized. Please email Ophir if you want to help organize EBOL.
