The clue? "Don't walk on the brass 'M' on the Diag before your first test at this Ann Arbor school; legend says you'll flunk if you do."
Afterward, the twittersphere was abuzz about the reference. "What is... M Go the Best University in the World @umich #Hail #GoBlue," tweeted one user. "@umich takes jeopardy. #goblue," tweeted another.
The question was a part of Jeopardy's teen tournament, which airs from Jan. 30 to Feb. 12. The three contestants were teenagers from Arkansas, Kentucky and Georgia.
One user on the online communication forum reddit.com said the question was worth $400 in the colleges category.
Although the teen tournament ends today, Wednesday sees the opening of the show's Tournament of Champions, with Stephanie Jass of Milan expected to appear on the first night. Last year, Jass became the winningest female contestant ever to appear on the show.
