Why was Eli Manning hanging out with these 2 former BYU quarterbacks?

Former Mississippi and NFL quarterback Eli Manning addresses the crowd as his No. 10 jersey number is retired as part of the halftime jersey retirement ceremony at a college football game against LSU in Oxford, Miss., Saturday, Oct. 23, 2021. The former New York Giants quarterback and two-time Super Bowl champion was reportedly at BYU with Cougar quarterbacks Jim McMahon and Ty Detmer for filming of “Eli’s Places,” a documentary that explores college football.

Late Tuesday, two-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Eli Manning shared a photo on Twitter that had BYU football fans doing a double-take. 


Well, in that photo, the former New York Giants QB was standing next to former BYU greats Jim McMahon and Ty Detmer.

The photo appears to be taken at LaVell Edwards Stadium.

What was Eli Manning doing at BYU?

It wasn’t immediately clear why the 41-year-old Manning, who’s moved on to a successful sports broadcasting career, would be in Provo.

Both Detmer and McMahon responded to Manning’s tweet, and McMahon provided a big clue why the meeting took place when he tweeted, “Fun day @BYUfootball with these 2. Check out Eli’s Places streaming on ESPN+ this fall! @TyDetmer14.”
