Being a Jeopardy! contestant is pretty hard. There is so much you have to know about a wide-range of topics, so slipping up on an answer in often understandable.
However, this one… ooof. It’s not good.
The answer on this daily double? “It’s the only Pac-12 school that does not contain the name of a state.” The incorrect response that the contestant — Justin — responded with?
“What is Auburn?”
In the immortal words of Alex Trebek: “Oh no…”
I don’t know how much Justin knows about college sports, but it seems like he went with the first non-state named school he could think of. Well, at least I hope that, because Auburn is obviously a long ways away from the Pacific coast.
The correct response? Stanford.
