PepsiCo, Vox Creative, Eater and SB Nation Kick Off “Game Day Grub Match: Athlete Face-Off”

The Digital Content Series Challenges Football Stars Greg Jennings, Nick Mangold and Rashad Jennings to Cook Up Winning Game Day Dishes

Three former NFL greats are back in the limelight – not on the field, but in the kitchen, as part of PepsiCo’s Game Day Grub Match. The three-episode competition, designed and brought to life by PepsiCo in collaboration with Vox Media’s in-house content studio, Vox Creative, can be viewed at www.GameDayGrubMatch.com, starting today.

The three retired stars – Greg Jennings, Super Bowl champion wide receiver and two-time Pro Bowler; Nick Mangold, seven-time Pro Bowl center for the New York Jets; and Rashad Jennings, running back and Dancing with the Stars winner – were challenged to prepare game day dishes using PepsiCo food and beverage products as ingredients – from Doritos to Tropicana, Sabra hummus to Naked Juice, Tostitos to Quaker Oats in PepsiCo’s culinary competition.

One lucky fan will also have a chance to be part of the action. Through January 15, fans are encouraged to visit www.GameDayGrubMatch.com and enter a 60-second video about why they deserve to be the PepsiCo Super Bowl LII Social Correspondent and win a trip for two to Minneapolis for the big game. The winner will post about their on-the- ground experiences during Super Bowl weekend on SB Nation’s social handles.
