Ole Miss Football To Retire Eli Manning’s No. 10 During 2020 Season
Eli Manning will have his No. 10 jersey retired during the 2020 football season at Ole Miss.
The football legend will be the third player in Ole Miss’ history to have his number retired along with his father Archie Manning and Chucky Mullins.
“We couldn’t be prouder or more excited to officially add Eli’s No. 10 to its rightful place among the retired jersey numbers in our football history,” Vice Chancellor for Intercollegiate Athletics Keith Carter said in a press statement.
The New Orleans, Louisiana, native set or tied 47 Ole Miss single‑game, season and career records during his time in Oxford.
“I owe so much credit to the coaches and all the wonderful teammates that I had here during my time in Oxford that put in all the hard work right alongside of me,” Manning said. “It’ll be special to see the number go up there next to my dad and Chucky Mullins.”
The ceremony is scheduled to take place later this year during the Auburn football game at Ole Miss.
