UD alumnus Roger Craig competes in ‘Jeopardy’ tournament finals

University of Delaware alumnus Roger Craig will compete in the two-day Jeopardy! Battle of the Decades tournament finals to air Thursday and Friday, May 15 and 16.

Craig, who has a master’s degree and doctorate in computer and information sciences from UD, defeated Colby Burnett and Pam Mueller in a semifinal round that aired Wednesday.

In the finals, Craig will face Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter.

Craig set a one-day winnings record in 2010 and ended that run with what was then the third highest total in Jeopardy! history. The next year, he won the prestigious Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions.
