The Iowa Hawkeyes basketball star on Monday became the first college athlete to appear on the ManningCast – and with style.
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes connected with Travis Kelce near the end of the first half on a touchdown to give the Chiefs a 14-7 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles and give Clark a permanent spot on the Mannings’ prediction board.
Clark’s appearance, which lasted about 15 minutes during the second quarter, actually ended before the touchdown occurred.
Clark, the uber-talented point guard, joined the ManningCast in time to watch Mahomes and Kelce connect on their first reception of the night. Peyton then asked Clark for her thoughts on the Mahomes-Kelce combo.
Clark, who led the Hawkeyes to the national title game last season, clearly appreciates her football. Yes, she made the touchdown prediction. But something equally impressive came later in her guest appearance.
Caitlin Clark, born in Iowa. Attended high school in Iowa. Attends college in Iowa. And, hmmm, how is it she now cheers for the Chiefs?
Yes, she predicted the Mahomes-to-Kelce touchdown pass near the end of the first half.
