Popular game show "Jeopardy!" featured a Lubbock-related clue during their College Championship-themed show this week, which was then shared on the Texas Tech University Facebook page.

The contestant, named Jack, chose the category "Big 12" for $600.

The clue read: "Though its name connotes more engineering than soft rock tunes, this Lubbock university boasts John Denver as an alum."

Jack instinctively answered, "What is Texas Tech?"

 

Thank you, Jack, for knowing we exist! Or rather, knowing John Denver went to college in Lubbock?

Denver studied Architecture at Texas Tech University and sang in a folk-music group called "The Alpine Trio" while attending school.

You can see Jack answering some more questions in the clip below.
