Peyton Manning to attend Georgia-Tennessee game, says Bulldogs 'better look out'
Peyton Manning is coming to Neyland Stadium on Saturday. And he’s hoping to see an upset of the No. 1 team in the country.
Manning shared that he’s planning on attending the Georgia-Tennessee game during his appearance on “The Steam Room” podcast with Charles Barkley and Ernie Johnson this week. Manning, a former Vols quarterback, isn’t hiding where his allegiance lies, either.
“The Georgia Bulldogs better look out. Tennessee Volunteers are on the rise,” Manning said on the podcast (h/t Erik Hall of the Knoxville News Sentinel).
However, Barkley pointed out his alma mater, Auburn, didn’t fare too well against Georgia, as the Tigers fell to the undefeated Bulldogs, 34-10, on Oct. 9.
“Hey, let me tell you something, I saw that movie about a month ago, it’s not going to end well,” Barkley said on the podcast, per Hall.
Manning added that Barkley was “probably right,” but that he’ll be “cheering hard” for the Vols when he shows up in Knoxville this weekend.
Tennessee and Georgia are set to kick off on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
Tennessee online sports betting officially launched on November 1, 2020, and many of the largest sportsbooks are live and operating in the volunteer state. Tennessee is only one of a handful of SEC football states with legalized sports betting.
