PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Former New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning went undercover to try out for the Penn State football team.
ESPN posted video on YouTube from the show "Eli's Places."
Manning donned a long-haired wig, a mustache and prosthetics to play the part of "Chad Powers," a homeschooled freshman trying out to be a Nittany Lion.
No one seemed impressed until the undercover, two-time Super Bowl champ started throwing pigskins.
In the end, Coach James Franklin revealed Manning to the other prospects and said "Chad Powers" failed to make the team.
Season 2 of "Eli's Places" premiered Aug. 10 on ESPN+.
