MR says: Question: What does BYU have to do with 'Jeopardy' and 'Late Night with Seth Meyers'? Answer: What is it made a surprise appearance on both shows.

What is Brigham Young University was the question. The answer was “The mission of this western university founded in 1875 is “to assist individuals in their quest for perfection and eternal life.”

And the TV show was Jeopardy. The producers of the show checked BYU’s mission statement for the Final Jeopardy clue in a recent program.

Close was not good enough as one contestant’s question was disqualified as written: “What is Bringham Young University?”
