Denver Broncos quarterback and Tennessee Volunteers legend Peyton Manning won his second Super Bowl on Sunday night, and a tribute to Manning is already on display on UT’s campus.

In the hours after the Broncos knocked off the Carolina Panthers, Tennessee student Payton Marie Miller painted Manning on “The Rock,” a large rock on campus that serves as a canvas for students.

Miller paints The Rock before Vols home games. Her work is awesome.

Manning, 39, became the first NFL quarterback to win the Super Bowl as a starter for two different teams. He also became the first quarterback to reach 200 wins.

Though he has not officially announced a decision, Manning is expected to announce his retirement in the coming weeks.
