    Baylor on Jeopardy

    Twice in the last few months, “Baylor” has been the correct answer to this game show’s questions.

    “What is ‘Jeopardy!‘?”

    In October, a clue read, “Robert Griffin III was the first player from this Waco, Texas, university to win the Heisman Trophy.”

    Then just before Christmas, Alex Trebek gave the clue above (“The Lady Bears of this Texas school went 40-0 en route to winning the 2012 women’s championship”).

    This isn’t the first time Baylor’s been the answer/question on Jeopardy!; one of our very first posts on this blog, in fact, relayed another such instance (“The 735-acre campus of this Baptist school is on the banks of the Brazos River in Waco, Texas”).

    Sic ’em, Jeopardy!
