The Tennessee Volunteers’ football facilities are not only some of the nicest in the country (some say they are without a doubt the nicest), but they also serve as a shrine to the history of Tennessee football.
Everywhere you look around the football complex there is a nod to a former player.
But Peyton Manning isn’t just a former player.
Peyton Manning is a legend in Knoxville. His name is uttered in the same breath as Robert Neyland, Johnny Majors, Phillip Fulmer and Condredge Holloway.
So it’s fitting that Tennessee now has a room dedicated to the former Vol.
The room, full of Peyton memorabilia, overlooks the Vols’ practice field.
Here are some photos of the room, via Twitter.

It’s great to see the love between Peyton Manning and Tennessee. The former Super Bowl MVP keeps Tennessee close to his heart and the Volunteers certainly return the affection.
