The 2016 Traffic Bowl for the ITE Midwestern District was held at the ITE Midwestern/Great Lakes District Joint Meeting in Chicago in June, 2016. The U of I participated with a team composed of undergrads and grads. Other teams that participated were: the University of Minnesota, the University of Southern Illinois at Edwardsville, the State University of North Dakota, Iowa State University, and the University of Kansas.
U of I reached the finals after a nail-biting finish against UMN, wherein a tie was broken by a margin of just 0.01 for the right answer! In the finals, U of I stood second behind new champions UMN, and defeating last year’s champion Iowa State. Last year, U of I stood third.
The Traffic Bowl was followed by a great pizza night at Gino’s! We look forward to next year’s event!
