On Wednesday night, "Jeopardy" briefly revived yesteryear's Mormon Moment.

In a YouTube clip posted Wednesday by user Julia Jeffery, the iconic TV game show devotes an entire category to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The category is sandwiched right between "Celebrities' kids' names" and "Hit parades."

According to the clip's description, the episode aired the same day it was posted.

More surprising than the category itself is that all the contestants went directly for it. Topics include missionaries, MoTab, and Marion Romney, among other stuff.

I don't want to spoil the video for you, so let's just say that if you're familiar at all with the Beehive State you don't have to be Ken Jennings to nail some of these answers.
