Teams participated in an academic quiz tournament based on the old television series, “College Bowl.”

This year for the first time in the 23-year history of the event, the team from Morgan State University in Baltimore won the championship. Morgan bested a team from Oakwood University in the final match. Florida A&M University and Morehouse College were semifinalists. Alabama State University, North Carolina A&T State University, Stillman College, and Southern University-New Orleans made it to the quarterfinal round. Morgan State received a grant of $50,000 for the university from Honda for winning the event.
