KUSA - Brock Osweiler is Peyton Manning's understudy. The Broncos backup quarterback is over studying though – meaning he's finally graduated.

Osweiler made the prestigious walk at Arizona State's graduation ceremony Monday night in Tempe.

The now Sun Devil alumni departed school for the National Football League following his junior season. Despite moving on from research papers and tests to mastering the playbook, Osweiler always wanted to finish up his degree.

He took nine credits following his rookie season and then just completed 12 more hours to put him in a requisite spot to finally receive his diploma.
