Peyton Manning Still Owns the Tennessee Record Books

It’s been 20 years since Peyton Manning took a snap for the Vols, and 13 different quarterbacks have started for Tennessee since Manning’s last start in the Orange Bowl at the end of the 2017 season. Yet even after all that time, Manning’s name still dominates Tennessee’s record books.

Even two decades after suiting up for the Vols, Manning still owns 18 school records. And that’s part of the reason why Manning was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame on Monday.

Here are all the records Peyton Manning still holds at Tennessee.

Game Records

Pass attempts: 65
Pass completions: 37
Total offensive plays: 70

Season Records

Total yards: 3,819
Touchdown passes thrown: 36
Total offensive yards: 3,789
Yards per game: 315.8
300-yard passing games: 10

Career Records

Pass attempts: 1,381
Pass completions: 863
Completion percentage: 62.5%
Total yards: 11,201
Touchdown passes thrown: 89
Total offensive plays: 1,534
Total offensive yards: 11,020
Total touchdowns: 101
Wins as starting quarterback: 39
300-yard passing games: 18

Manning is also the only Vol with two 3,000-yard seasons in school history. Josh Dobbs finished 38 yards short of eclipsing 3,000 yards in 2015, otherwise he would’ve joined Manning as the only two players with two 3,000-yard seasons.

This upcoming season will mark the 20th season of Tennessee football since Peyton Manning last took a snap in the orange and white. But Manning’s presence is still all over Tennessee’s record books.
