Jazz Create Ken Jennings, GOAT Jersey After BYU Grad Wins Jeopardy Tournament
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Ken Jennings, a BYU graduate, is the greatest Jeopardy contestant of all time and the Utah Jazz took notice.
Over the past weeks, Jennings has been competing in Jeopardy’s GOAT tournament and last night he officially won the title.
The Utah Jazz posted a photo of two purple mountain jerseys, both with the number one. The key difference is that one said Jennings and the other said GOAT. The tweet asked Jennings which one they should send over.
