Get ready for Jeopardy! College Championship. The two-week tournament begins Feb. 1 and USC has a contestant in the race for the $100,000 grand prize.
Sam Deutsch — a junior from Bethesda, Md., majoring in political economy at the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences — is one of 15 undergraduates to reach the quarterfinals this season.
A former high school Quiz Bowl ace, Deutsch is the fourth Trojan to compete in the tournament since Jeopardy! College Championship began in 1988.
