The Manning Award has been presented annually since 2004 to the collegiate American football quarterback adjudged by the Sugar Bowl Committee to be the best in the United States. It is the only quarterback award that includes each candidate's postseason-bowl performance in its balloting.[1]

The award is named in honor of former University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) and quarterback Archie Manning and his quarterback sons Peyton and Eli. Archie was also the quarterback for the NFL's New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings. Peyton was the star quarterback at the University of Tennessee and is the current quarterback of the NFL's Indianapolis Colts. Eli was also a star quarterback at Ole Miss and is the current quarterback of the NFL's New York Giants. Both Peyton and Eli were All-America selections during their college careers and both have led their respective professional teams to Super Bowl championships, each winning the Super Bowl MVP award (Peyton with the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLI and Eli with the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII). Archie was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1989. So far, none of the winners have won a playoff game.
