What is the Intramural Cup?
The Intramural Cup is one of three trophies awarded to Intramural Units based on the number of Unit Points earned across the year. Units earn points for their participation and achievement in all Intramural events and at the end of the year awards are given to the units with the highest point total in Women's Leagues (the Rose Bowl), Open Leagues (the UAB Cup), and across all events (the Intramural Cup). An explanation of how Unit Points are awarded and up-to-date Unit Point Standings are available online.
