A team named "Network: Eye of the Spider" has won the self-proclaimed world's largest trivia contest for a third straight time. It was held during the weekend on the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point radio station, WWSP.

The team composed of people originally from Stevens Point who have moved to various parts of the country accumulated 8,785 points during the contest, which ended at midnight after 54 hours.

That compared with 8,545 for second place "Tin Man" and 8,505 for third place "Graduates of a Lesser God."

Organizers say 459 teams and more than 11,800 people participated.

The marathon of the mind sent trivia buffs scurrying to search books, the Internet, movies and other sources for answers to obscure questions.

Eight questions were broadcast each hour. Teams phoned in answers within the next two songs played on the air.
