University of Texas senior wins Jeopardy! college championship

Jaskaran Singh outlasted Kennesaw State’s Raymond Goslow and Northeastern's Liz Feltner to win the $250,000 top prize.

He is the winner in the Jeopardy! National College Championship from the University of Texas at Austin. Who is Jaskaran Singh? Correct.

Singh, a senior finance/economics double-major at the McCombs Business, won the two-game, hour-long primetime final on ABC with a cumulative score of $51,700, nearly $5,000 clear of Kennesaw State’s Raymond Goslow’s runner-up total of $46,999. Singh took a big lead after the first game with $32,400 to Goslow’s $13,200.

UT lit its tower Tuesday night to recognize Singh. He won $250,000 and now gets to compete in the Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions.

“It feels pretty awesome,” Singh said. “It’ll definitely go a long way in paying my tuition and a lot more.”
