Academic teams from sixteen Oklahoma colleges won more than $78,000 in scholarships while competing during the first season of KSBI TV’s “Mind Games” program, according to a news release.
“Mind Games” is a locally produced game show which features Oklahoma colleges challenging each other in a battle of the brains.
The fall season ended up in a contest between the University of Central Oklahoma Bronze Team and Redlands Communitiy College, with UCO winning the top prize of $13,250 and Redlands earning a total of $11,250.
The University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University also competed in their first three-game “Bedlam” Mind Game series, with OSU winning the fall competition and taking home $5,750, while OU received $5,250.
OU and OSU will start a second three-game series with another $11,000 in scholarships to vie for on Jan. 25.
Oklahoma’s other two- and four-year colleges will begin the spring semester games Feb. 8 and compete for more than $60,000 in scholarships.
The spring games winner will go up against the UCO Bronze Team for the Grand Championship.
