As if Saturday’s game against top-ranked Alabama wasn’t exciting enough for Tennessee fans, now Peyton Manning will be in attendance and be honored for his standout career, which ended when he retired from the NFL earlier this year.
Manning played four seasons for the Vols, his last in 1997, before going on to a long, standout career playing for the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos.
If you Vols fans aren’t excited enough already for Manning’s return, check out this hype video released by the team’s Twitter account on Saturday morning:
