ESPNU Will Air More Than 16 Straight Hours Of Manning Family Content on October 22




, ,

One of football’s most prominent families will have a full day dedicated to them on ESPNU. The Manning family-centric broadcast will feature three generations of Mannings, who are often cited as the best quarterbacking family in football history.

Friday’s broadcast will feature collegiate games from Peyton Manning’s days at Tennessee and Eli Manning’s days at Ole Miss before they were both No. 1 overall picks in the NFL. Four of Peyton’s games will be broadcast on the network, whereas little brother Eli will have two.

The patriarch of the Manning QB dynasty, Archie Manning, will be spotlighted in the SEC Storied film “The Book of Manning,” narrated by actor John Goodman. The documentary delves into how tragedy shaped Archie’s football career and will feature revealing interviews with his wife Olivia, sons Cooper, Peyton, and Eli Manning, along with other family members, friends, former teammates, and coaches. Directed by Rory Karpf, the film is an intensive look into the Manning family, with photos and home movie footage of Archie and his sons.

Friday night will cap off with the future of the Manning QB dynasty, Arch Manning. Like his uncles Peyton and Eli, Arch attends Isidore Newman School and is the No. 2-ranked junior in the country according to ESPN Jr. 300. He will be leading the Greenies against Berkley Prep under the bright lights of a nationally televised contest.

The Manning coverage will continue on Monday night when Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli returns during Week 7. ESPN+ has exclusive Manning content like the second season of Peyton Places available to stream. Not to be outdone by his big brother, you can find Eli’s Places on ESPN+ too.
