UNTrivia answer:

The correct answer is (c). At the end of the 2001-02 debate season, UNT's team was ranked 13th in the nation, ahead of teams from Harvard, Georgetown, Stanford and Baylor universities and the University of Texas at Austin. National Debate Tournament officials rank teams based on the entire team performance at qualifying tournaments, assigning points to each team. No other Texas debate program ranked higher than UNT.

The UNT Debate Team attends 15 to 20 tournaments each year, including Wake Forest, Northwestern, Southern California, Central Oklahoma, Utah and Baylor. For more information, visit www.comm.unt.edu/debate.htm and www.unt.edu/northtexan/archives/s01/greatdebate.htm.
