TODAY's weatherman-and-more visited the University of Tennessee, and he had a big plan for UT — well, at least for the "T" part.

While the university is renowned for its business, engineering and law schools, it's also famous for that letter. The Power T is their logo after all, and as such, it shows up on everything from buildings to campus clothes to football helmets.

If you want to see a truly massive "T," check out the latest world-record to hit Rokerthon. The students pulled off the largest human letter ever on the field.

In 2016, 3,373 people put Queen's University in Kingston, Canada, in the record books by forming a huge "Q." But this morning, 4,223 formed the "T" and held it for five minutes.

What a feat!
