SWOSU Plays Northwestern in Mind Games this Wednesday


Two universities from the western side of Oklahoma have advanced to the semifinals of the Mind Games competition and the two—Southwestern Oklahoma State University and Northwestern Oklahoma State University—will meet each other this Wednesday, May 9.

The battle can be seen on KSBI-TV at 8 p.m. KSBI is available on cable, Direct TV and Dish Network. Host for the program is Jenifer Reynolds.

SWOSU has a record of two wins and no losses this season, SWOSU defeated Connors State College 450-30 in the first round and beat Cameron University 380-120 in the quarterfinals.

SWOSU is competing against other Oklahoma colleges and universities in this second season of Mind Games, which is a buzzer-quiz game comparable to Quiz Bowl or Jeopardy. The game is based on knowledge in all academic fields, and students compete for scholarship money.

The team is coached by Dr. Kevin Collins and team members are: Zeke Mills, Springfield MO; Gaston Hart, Edmond (Santa Fe); Tanner Fisher, Calumet; Erika Christner, Drummond; and Jim Ferguson, Elk City.

If SWOSU wins the May 9, the finals are set for Wednesday, May 16, at 8 p.m. on KSBI-TV.
