The University of Minnesota will soon be the recipient of two national quiz bowl championships previously won by Harvard University, the Star Tribune reports.
National Academic Quiz Tournaments announced Friday that one of Harvard's players had accessed parts of questions prepared for tournaments in which he later competed.
As a result, Harvard was stripped of four titles, and the U of M has been declared the winners in 2009 and 2011, where they placed as runners-up.
The University of Chicago and Virginia Commonwealth University were awarded the other titles.
According to the Star Tribune, the 2009 title is for the U of M undergraduate team, and the 2011 title comes for the more competitive Division I match, where graduate students participate.
NAQT is reportedly more faster-paced and the more game-show-like of the two big national quiz tournaments.
