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 information about tonight’s syndicated episode here, and information about quarterfinal #1 here!


Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: In the second of tonight’s two quarterfinal matches, North America gets to meet LSU’s Stephen Privat, Rice’s Jasmine Manansala, and Princeton’s Ella Feiner. This game is going to begin at (or about) 8:30 PM Eastern/Pacific, 7:30 PM Central/Mountain.

One thing I’ve noticed is a lot of confusion as to why this tournament is happening during the Olympics. It needs to be noted that this tournament was specifically ordered by ABC as counter-programming to NBC’s Olympics coverage, as game shows are much more inexpensive to produce compared to most scripted television series. This gives ABC a better chance of making money (or, at least, not losing as much money) while NBC has its Olympic coverage.


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.

5 Comments on "Jeopardy! National College Championship Game Recap – Tuesday, February 8, 2022 (Quarterfinal #2)"

  1. Good clue – I went with rose also thinking ‘love’ totally not thinking of Venus the goddess of love.

  2. I wondered if the three ‘Rose’ responses were due to Elton John having dubbed Princess Diana an ‘English Rose’? (And perhaps others before him had?)

  3. Andy, I’d say ABC made a good bet since not everyone is interested in the Olympics and especially since I’ve heard the ratings are down for the Olympics (before College Jeopardy! began airing).

  4. Although I knew about the plant, I knew more about the Venus Flytrap from Tim Reid playing Venus Flytrap on WKRP In Cincinnati.

    Messed up again, with etymology AND mythology being usually strong categories for me, but I could not go from Aphrodite to Venus to Venus Fly-Trap ;p
