Pat McAfee will call six college football games on ESPN2 in the 2022–23 season.
The former Colts punter will work with Omaha Productions on the call, along with his former quarterback Peyton Manning. Manning joined McAfee’s show on Thursday to help announce the news.
“Peyton, you’re the f—— man,” McAfee said. “Thanks for the opportunity, thanks for the business.”
“I can’t thank you enough, man,” Manning said on Thursday’s show. “Looking forward to it. You are the best. If you are looking forward to being your teammate again.”

Manning and his brother Allie began at least the NFL season with a simulcast deemed “Manningcast” that took place on ESPN 2 during “Monday Night Football”. Due to its popularity, MLB did a similar version of the simulcast on Sunday nights, called “Kerode” with Alex Rodriguez and Michael Kay.
McAfee will follow this format this upcoming season over the course of six college football games on Saturday. Similarly, every game on his show will also have guests. ESPN will continue to show the main broadcasts of each game.
Six games have not been released for McAfee’s anonymous simulcast. However, the host referred to them as the “Big A–” games.
