Quiz Bowl Team Captures National Championship for Second Straight Year

The win at the Reciprocal Meat Conference is the Red Raiders’ seventh since 2003.

Texas Tech University’s Meat Science Academic Quiz Bowl Team earned the title of National Champions at the 67th Reciprocal Meat Conference (RMC) in Madison, Wisconsin.

The Red Raiders entered two teams in the contest, sponsored by Hormel, finishing first and third against 27 other teams from the top meat science programs at 19 universities. Colorado State University finished second.

“The students who competed are extremely intelligent,” said Mark Miller, professor and San Antonio Livestock Show & Rodeo Distinguished Chairman in Meat Science. “Their performance at RMC was a great reflection of the high academic standards of Texas Tech’s Department of Animal and Food Sciences.”

RMC is an annual conference sponsored by the American Meat Science Association (AMSA), which brings together meat scientists and students from academia, industry and government.
