You’d think that images of Derrick Henry gashing LSU for 210 yards and three touchdowns in November would be ingrained in the minds of Tigers fans forever, but apparently that isn’t the case.
During tonight’s episode of College “Jeopardy,” LSU student Kevin Brown passed on a Henry clue that seemed to be a no-brainer for any SEC student:
Tell me how this kid goes to LSU????? @bustedcoverage @edsbs @JimMWeber pic.twitter.com/Jc4HQNsKz0

In case you’re curious about the background of Kevin, he’s a senior Environmental Engineering student who was the first LSU student to be invited to “Jeopardy:”
LSU environmental engineering senior and 2012 Flagship Scholar recipient Kevin Brown is the first LSU student to be invited to the “Jeopardy!” College Championship Tournament, where he will be one of 15 students competing for a $100,000 grand prize in the 2016 tournament, airing Feb. 1-12.
“Being on ‘Jeopardy!’ was a much more intense and significant experience than I expected,” said Brown. “Over the course of two days, I got a behind-the-scenes look at a nationally beloved TV show, met 14 amazing students from around the country and, most importantly, had the opportunity to represent LSU on the national stage. I was the first LSU student to be invited to the College Championship, and I hope that my appearance will inspire more students to go for it.”
Sidenote: He almost missed a Steve Spurrier clue before Henry came up.

Reaction to Kevin’s non answer was met with some hot takes on sports Twitter:
@holytrifootball @Mark_Schlabach @bustedcoverage @edsbs @JimMWeber he also had no idea who "the old ball coach" was.

@holytrifootball @JimMWeber @bustedcoverage @edsbs I was wondering who the kids where in the Library during the Championship game.
