Pat McAfee's rise to fame has been nothing short of remarkable; and his trajectory keeps skyrocketing. 

McAfee will be teaming up with NFL legend Peyton Manning to call six major college football games this upcoming season. Each game will be aired on ESPN2; an alternate broadcast similar to the "Manningcast" which debuted last NFL season. 

“Peyton, you are the f------ man,” McAfee said, via Sports Illustrated. “Thank you for the opportunity, thank you for the business.”

A massive industry news dump and a big opportunity for McAfee and Omaha Productions.

"Pat McAfee (@PatMcAfeeShow) will work with QB Peyton Manning and Omaha Productions to call six college football games in the 2022–23 CFB season on ESPN2," wrote Sports Illustrated.

"The Pat McAfee Show and Peyton Manning's Omaha Productions will host six broadcasts of major college football games this season. McAfee and his crew will appear on ESPN2, live on Saturday nights from their Indianapolis studio," said Front Office Sports.

"We have officially agreed alongside @OmahaProd to simulcast SIX BIG ASS COLLEGE FOOTBALL GAMES this season LET'S CELEBRATE PEYTON #PMSLive," said Pat McAfee.

"@PatMcAfeeShow will call 6 college football games this season on ESPN2, in partnership with Peyton Manning's @OmahaProd. Name who you would like to see on the show," said the Sports Business Journal. 

This is going to be must-watch television. McAfee and Manning are going to be spectacular together.
