The Ole Miss football program will have a special field for this weekend’s game against the LSU Tigers… and five-star quarterback recruit Arch Manning will be visiting Oxford.

This weekend, the Rebels are painting “Manning” in the endzone.

But don’t worry, they aren’t going that far for a recruit. The special endzone paint job is to honor former Ole Miss star turned two-time Super Bowl champion Eli Manning, who is having his No. 10 jersey retired on Saturday afternoon.

Of course, Eli is Arch’s uncle. Arch is the No. 1 recruit in the Class of 2023. His trip to Oxford will count as an unofficial visit.

Arch Manning, who has offers from all of the top programs in the country, has recently visited Georgia, Alabama, and Texas.

As for the Rebels, they will take the field against LSU at 3:30 p.m. ET at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium for CBS’s SEC Game of the Week.
