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.

Jennings is the highest-earning game show contestant of all time, according to Wikipedia.

He also holds the longest Jeopardy win streak with 74 straight wins.

Jennings has a degree in Computer Science and English from BYU.

Jenning’s Cheeky Response

A few hours later Jennings provided a “punny” response to the tweet.

“Please send both!! I’ll be eagerly awaiting for… ‘the mailman’ (wink emoji) (Utah Jazz joke)”
