Peyton Manning will join College GameDay for Tennessee vs. Alabama
Watching Russell Wilson and missing Peyton Manning?
That may be the case for some Denver Broncos fans, but it’ll be the case for the country on Monday when they take on the Chargers. Without a Manningcast on this week’s Monday Night Football and with how dreadful the Broncos have been this year on offense, the hijinks of Eli and Peyton will be missed. But Peyton’s busy this weekend, headed back home to Knoxville, Tennessee.
Like Manning, GameDay is making the trip to the Great Smoky Mountains for (3) Alabama vs. (6) Tennessee. The tilt between undefeated SEC foes has the Crimson Tide favored by more than a touchdown, but there’s no way Manning is picking Nick Saban’s squad over Josh Heupel’s.

Manning went 3-1 in his college career against Alabama, throwing seven touchdowns. The Pro Football Hall of Famer finished his career holding 42 NCAA, SEC, or Volunteer records.
Saturday is the 11th time Tennessee has hosted GameDay and the second time this season. Earlier, WWE wrestler Bianca Belair was the celebrity guest picker, but now ESPN and the Vols have broken out their biggest star for a colossal showdown.
