If you've been a longtime Fort Collins resident, you likely know a decent amount about the town.

For example, you know that Silver Grill has delicious cinnamon rolls. Or that 'buffalo' is a swear word here. Or that it's completely normal for CSU students to run around in their underwear every May.

But do you know Fort Collins well enough to put your knowledge to a Jeopardy-level test?

Let's find out by going over these three Fort Collins-related questions that have actually appeared on Jeopardy throughout the years (the answers are at the bottom of this article...no cheating).
