What's In a Game Packet

The following is a list of topic categories used in College Bowl game packets and the approximate distribution of questions in each category. The distribution of questions in each game does vary slightly, so as to keep each game unique. The content distribution does not change materially between the campus, regional and national championship tournament games, but the questions are progressively more difficult.

We do maintain a target distribution of topics within this range:
