The University of Tennessee could soon add another championship to its mantle.

The school will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest human letter by forming an enormous Power T in Neyland Stadium. UT’s attempt will be featured during a live episode of NBC’s “Today Show,” with weatherman Al Roker doing his weather reports from the stadium as part of his Rokerthon, an annual trek across the country to break world records.

Tennessee is asking 4,000 students, faculty, staff and alumni to come out for the attempt. Guinness representatives will be on hand to certify the record.

“Standing together in Neyland Stadium with 4,000 members of our Volunteer family will be a shared memory that will last a lifetime,” Tennessee chancellor Beverly Davenport said.

Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada, currently holds the record with 3,373 participants in September 2016.
