ROLLA, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri University of Science and Technology is planning a "Jeopardy!" watch party for a faculty member who landed a spot on the game show.
Ilene Morgan will make her debut on Tuesday's episode of the show. The university says the watch party is planned for 4:30 p.m. that day in the Gale Bullman Multi-Purpose Building on the Rolla campus.
Morgan is an associate professor of mathematics and statistics. She tried twice to land a spot on the program before succeeding last year. She traveled to Culver City, Calif., to compete on Oct. 29 and 30.
Morgan described her "Jeopardy!" experience as "bucket-list awesome." She said she was having fun and wasn't thinking about the audience, the camera or the prize money.
