University of Tennessee students' school spirit is pushing the school into the world of morning TV.

On Monday, the freewheeling fourth hour of "Today," which features hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, will originate from the UT campus. UT is getting the opportunity after winning the show's "Kathie Lee and Hoda Go Back to College" challenge based on online votes.

Other details about what segments will be done and how the public can see the entire show live are forthcoming. Among the segments planned, though, are dorm room makeovers.

Competition for UT included Syracuse University, The Ohio State University, Brandeis University, the University of South Florida and Creighton University.

More details will be reported on Knoxville.com.
