University of Idaho featured in Jeopardy! question

Vandals who watch Jeopardy groaned collectively (probably) Tuesday night.

All three contestants on Jeopardy! Tuesday night froze, unpressed buzzers in hand, quizzically silent, when Alex Trebek read off the absolute gimme Idaho trivia question:

“They’re Russian around and having a capital time at the University of Idaho in this city.”

At least host Alex Trebek correctly pronounced Idaho’s Moscow.

One of our state’s other well-known universities, Boise State, was featured in a Jeopardy! question in May.
