NEWARK, N.J. -- Tennessee's national-leading five players in Super Bowl XLVIII took part in Super Bowl Media Day on Tuesday. Peyton Manning had the largest gathering of the day. The Denver Broncos' signal caller answered continuous questions from hundreds of media members for more than hour.

Manning spoke with pride about his beloved University of Tennessee, which produced four members of the AFC Champion Broncos.

"It's an exciting group of Tennessee guys on our team. We stick together," said Manning. "Tennessee Volunteer football is coming back. We have taken a little abuse in the locker room from (Georgia's) Champ Bailey and some other SEC guys, but we have stayed strong.

"It's been fun to play with a group of guys with the same alma mater. All of us are proud to represent the University. Being a Vol For Life means a great deal."

Manning shares his locker room with defensive linemen Robert Ayers and Malik Jackson along with punter Britton Colquitt. The Broncos' coaching staff also features a pair of former Vols in back-up signal caller Jim Bob Cooter, who works with the quarterbacks and former Vols graduate assistant Derius Swinton, who works with special teams.

The Broncos' face the Seattle Seahawks, featuring defensive lineman and VFL Tony McDaniel, along with former assistant coach Kippy Brown, who guides Seattle's receivers.
