This is currently a placeholder post which will be updated with Final Jeopardy! information and a game recap once it is known. Is this game not the game from today that you’re looking for? Check out the daily syndicated game recap here, or the recap for Quarterfinal #6 here.
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Starting off today’s third episode are Clemson junior Pauline Bisaccio, Creighton sophomore Chance Persons, and Harvard senior Neha Seshadri. This game’s winner will be playing next in the first semifinal on February 17.
Interestingly, Neha is the 16th Harvard student to compete in a Jeopardy! college tournament. None of the previous 15 have won. In fact, the only two Ivy League students to have won in the past are Terry O’Shea (Princeton, 2014) and Dhruv Gaur (Brown, 2018).
PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to get their vaccinations as soon as they are able to, including any boosters as recommended. When wearing a mask, please ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

- Considering how much in the red Pauline was at one point, I’m not surprised that she went conservative on the final Daily Double.
