USA TODAY Sports' Paul Myerberg breaks down the latest Amway Coaches Poll. USA TODAY


Fans on social media have been known to have fun at the expense of "Jeopardy!" contestants for whom sports knowledge might not have been a strong suit.

That isn’t likely to be the case for one of Friday’s contestants should a football-related category happen to come up in her game.

Katherine Ryan, a non-profit executive and the daughter of North Carolina football coach Mack Brown, will try her hand at the game of answers and questions. She’s sure to have a lot of support from Tar Heels’ followers.

Even if there isn’t a full sports category, there is usually a question or two related to athletic endeavors within the game material. Sometimes the clues go for something as simple as terminology but they also can include the intersection of sports with popular culture.
