Wisconsin's favorite quarterback is guest hosting Jeopardy! very soon.

Aaron Rodgers announced on the Pat McAfee show Tuesday that he was stepping into the hosting gig. This will be the QB's first time hosting. Rodgers took first place as a contestant on Celebrity Jeopardy! in 2015.

"One of my idols growing up was Alex Trebek," Rodgers said on the show.

After the death of its host Alex Trebek, Jeopardy will be using a series of guest hosts. The first episode following Trebek's passing aired on Jan. 11, with Ken Jennings, a former contestant who won 74 games of Jeopardy! in a row.

“You know, sharing this stage with Alex Trebek was one of the greatest honors of my life,” Jennings said at the opening of Monday’s episode. “Not many things in life are perfect, but Alex did this job pretty much perfectly for more than 36 years, and it was even better up close.

It's unclear when Rodgers' episode will air.
