Less than 10 days ago, Ole Miss outlasted Tennessee on the road in a messy SEC game. The outcome didn’t just have an impact on the conference standings; it also affected Peyton Manning‘s attire on this week’s “ManningCast.”
Peyton and his brother Eli reunited on Monday evening for their Monday Night Football alternate telecast. The elder Manning, who’s a Tennessee alum, donned a special jersey for the occasion.
In the first few minutes of the broadcast, Peyton put on No. 10 Ole Miss jersey, following through on a bet that he made with Eli, who played for the Rebels in college. Because Ole Miss won the game back on Oct. 16, Peyton was forced to wear his brother’s jersey for the duration of his television appearance on Monday.
Eli actually had his Rebels No. 10 uniform retired this past weekend, but having his brother wear the jersey on national television was probably just as satisfying.
The rest of the NFL world also loved that Peyton had to wear the Ole Miss red-and-white for Monday’s broadcast. Many fans took to Twitter to comment on his wardrobe choice.
