A social media trend developing this week is the idea of Peyton and Eli Manning broadcasting the Tennessee vs. Ole Miss football game on Oct. 16. 

The idea comes after Peyton and Eli Manning debuted an alternate broadcast of Monday Night Football during the Sept. 13 broadcast of the Baltimore Ravens vs. Las Vegas Raiders. 

Among those that have supported the idea of the former Southeastern Conference quarterbacks broadcasting the Ole Miss game at Tennessee is Ole Miss football coach Lane Kiffin

Now, someone from ESPN is on board for the idea — Rece Davis
