JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars announced at a pep rally on Thursday night that the new jaguar cub at the Jacksonville Zoo will be named Khan.

The Jaguars and the Jacksonville Zoo teamed up to name the jaguar in an online vote.

Coincidentally, the cub born on July 18 has the same birthday as Jaguars owner Shad Khan.

Khan sent Action News this quote after the announcement was made: "Thanks to everyone. I know Khan will love Jax every bit as much as the Khans. Go Jaguars - all Jaguars."
