The matchups are out for the latest version of Capital One's "The Match," and we've got to say, the pairings are pretty enticing.

Last year, it was Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson squaring off against Peyton Manning and Tiger Woods. Obviously, Tiger can't compete this time around as he's recovering from his February car crash.

However, the organizers of the golf showcase found two more than adequate replacements. Aaron Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau will face off with TB12 and Lefty in Montana on July 6 on TNT.

So it will be the Super Bowl champion QB and the PGA Championship-winning golfer against the reigning NFL MVP and the defending U.S. Open winner. Sign us up for that.

Not surprisingly, people in the sports world are excited to tune in for this.

Last summer, Woods and Manning defeated Brady and Mickelson, though Mickelson exacted some revenge when he and Charles Barkley took down Peyton and Steph Curry in their matchup in November.

We'll see who comes out on top at Big Sky in July.
