This is currently a placeholder post which will be updated with Final Jeopardy! information and a game recap once it is known. Is this not the game you’re looking for? You can find the recap for the February 16, 2022 syndicated game here, and recap for quarterfinal #12 here.

Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: As we move onto the sixth and final day of quarterfinals in the Jeopardy! National College Championship, we have Spelman’s Claire Jackson, Georgetown’s Nam Vu, and Tulane’s Fiona Hellerman competing for a spot in the semifinals. We’ll be seeing today’s winner again tomorrow, as the winner will be playing against Harvard’s Neha Seshadri and Kennesaw State’s Raymond Goslow in semifinal #1.

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.

    Dang 🙁 After an 8 game FJ win streak, I missed this one, coming up with “Gettysburg” also (although I knew it was wrong). tch Good luck to Nam in the Semis!

  2. Interesting that the Georgetown contestant missed the FJ. You can see the school from Arlington National Cemetery
