Day 2 of the College Championship Finals! Remember that anything won today will be added to what was won yesterday to determine the tournament champion!
|Sam Deutsch, a junior at the University of Southern California from Bethesda, MD
|Niki Peters, a sophomore at the University of California, Berkeley from Boise, ID
|Sarah Dubnik, a senior at the University of Pittsburgh from Jamison, PA
Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Final Jeopardy! category: THE U.S. SENATE
Final Jeopardy! clue: During his Senate service, which lasted from 1973 to January 2009, this man cast 12,810 votes
Who is Joe Biden?
Sarah 4800 – 4800 = 0 + 22001 = 22001 (Obama) ($25,000)
Sam 8600 + 8600 = 17200 + 22000 = 39200 (Biden) ($100,000)
Niki 16400 – 3350 = 13050 + 18600 = 31650 (Byrd) ($50,000)
Another great Final Jeopardy, worthy of a tournament final in my opinion.
I think Niki might have underbet, just worrying about Sarah, forgetting that Sam might overtake her. Being very sick will do that! But congratulations to Sam, tournament champion!
