Ole Miss football coach Lane Kiffin knows who he wants doing the TV broadcast for the Ole Miss football game at Tennessee on Oct. 16.
Eli Manning and Peyton Manning.
On Wednesday afternoon, Kiffin tweeted about his desire for the former Southeastern Conference quarterbacks to be teamed up for the broadcast.
“Come on @ESPNCFB give the people what they want @Vol_Football @OleMissFB #WeWantEli #WeWantPeyton,” Kiffin said.
Eli Manning played quarterback for Ole Miss from 2000-03. Peyton Manning played quarterback for Tennessee from 1994-97.
LET’S DO IT AGAIN:Peyton and Eli Manning make ‘Monday Night Football’ game a blast with alternate simulcast
The Manning brothers debuted “Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli” during Monday’s NFL game between the Las Vegas Raiders and Baltimore Ravens. For 10 games in each of the next three seasons, Peyton and Eli Manning will do an alternate Monday Night Football broadcast on ESPN2.
Kiffin’s suggestion for the Ole Miss vs. Tennessee broadcast was a quote tweet of the suggestion that came from the @RedditCFB account on Twitter. Its tweet Wednesday morning said, “Day 1 of tweeting @ESPNCFB to confirm the Ole Miss @ Tennessee Manningcast.”
The week after the Tennessee game, Ole Miss has announced its home game against LSU on Oct. 23 is Eli Manning Day.
Peyton and Eli Manning’s father, Archie Manning, played quarterback at Ole Miss from 1968-70.
