Answer: An IU Bloomington senior who finished second in the Jeopardy! 2020 College Championship.
In a new spin on this year’s “March Madness,” Tyler Combs, a Greenfield, Ind., native, became the face of IU as he answered and wagered his way to the College Championship finals. To no surprise, IU Nation welcomed its new representative with open arms—tuning in religiously for every round.
Shortly after the tournament finals aired, Combs, who is pursuing a political science degree, sat down with his alumni mentor, Megan Caldwell, BS’12, via Zoom. The pair discussed his Jeopardy! journey, his favorite place to study on campus, and how he’s adjusting to virtual learning during his final semester at IU.
