Surely you already know that Berkeley High is an incubator of greatness. And it's produced yet another genius. Class of 2010 grad Matt Olson, who now attends Stanford University and copyedits for The Stanford Daily, just pwned his quarterfinal game in the "Jeopardy!" College Championship, which means he now gets to jockey for the $100,000 grand prize.

He'll next appear on the semifinals this Friday, February 10. They air at 7 p.m.
