This was a clue on the "Jeopardy!" tournament of champions.

Some of the finest minds ever to appear on the game show “Jeopardy!” were stumped by a question about an Oklahoma sports figure.

“Jeopardy!” is in the midst of a Tournament of Champions. During an episode that aired Wednesday night, this was a clue:

“Steve Largent went on from this university to a HOF pro career, then returned home to represent the area in congress.”

One contestant answered “Oklahoma.” Another answered “Oklahoma State.”

The answer, of course, was the University of Tulsa.
