University of Texas senior wins Jeopardy! college championship
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.”
