Craig trailing UCLA by a mere $2,100. It’s a nail biter!

Posted by at 2:07AM

After the first game of the Jeopardy College Championship Finals, Craig Boge trails UCLA’s Cliff by the small sum of $2,100. At one point, Craig fell behind by over $10,000, but made an aggressive push, answered the Final Jeopardy question correctly, and ended up a strong second going into the final game of the championship, which airs today at 7PM on ABC.
The final jeopardy question: “This term still had ‘work’ on the end when Vinton Cerf and Robert Kahn, 2 of its creators, used it in a key 1974 paper.” The correct answer: “What is the internet?”
Craig wagered $5,100 to finish with $16,000. Cliff of UCLA finished the first round with $18,000 after answering the Final Jeopardy question incorrectly, while Notre Dame’s Christine is pretty much out of the game with only $3,200.
As before, our lounge (Grove Lasuen) was packed with anxious housemates and other supporters, who cheered loudly as it became clear that Cliff did not have the correct answer to the Final Jeopardy question, helping move Craig almost to parity. The suspense is killing us, but we’re already so proud of Craig! He’s assured at least second place!
