Quick: This nationally renowned, Jesuit liberal arts college has appeared on “Jeopardy!” 10 times.

If you responded with “What is Holy Cross?,” that is correct, as host Alex Trebek might say.

On June 27, in the category of “Colleges With Mass. Appeal,” Holy Cross was the question to the following answer: “This oldest Catholic college in New England is located in the wicked excellent city of Worcester.”

It was the 10th time that Holy Cross has been part of either the answer or question in the longtime running quiz show, according to a “Jeopardy!” spokeswoman. Holy Cross was last featured on March 6.

Here is a complete list of Holy Cross references on the show, according to the J! Archive website.
