Peyton Manning set to star in new NBC quiz show 'College Bowl'
For the most part, Peyton Manning has kept a low profile since retiring from the NFL.
The Hall of Fame quarterback has passed on multiple opportunities to become an NFL analyst for ESPN as he continues to weigh his options following the end of his playing days.
While he may not be interested in being an analyst, Manning clearly has no issue being put in front of a television camera.
Now, in addition to his ESPN+ show Peyton’s Places, the former Tennessee All-American is set to star in a new NBC quiz show called College Bowl. Peyton will be joined by his brother, Cooper, on the show. Cooper is the father of five-star 2023 quarterback prospect, Arch Manning.
College Bowl is set to air in June and will feature competition between college students fighting to win prizes that will help further their education.
Variety recently shared some details on the show:
In each show, teams of three representing some of the nation’s top schools must work together to answer questions on a wide variety of subjects. The top two schools advance to the final, where they compete head-to-head for the Capital One College Bowl trophy and a scholarship to put toward their education. Participating schools include University of Alabama, Auburn University, Columbia University, University of Michigan, University of Minnesota, Ole Miss, Morehouse College, University of Tennessee, University of Southern California, UCLA, University of Virginia and Xavier of Louisiana.
