Which College Has the Most Former Players Slated to Start in The “Big Game?”
Hint: it's NOT Alabama, Florida State, Auburn, or any other SEC power.
It's Oregon. According to 247Sports.com from CBS, The Ducks have three players who are already confirmed to start when New England takes on Seattle. Seahawks center Max Unger, Fullback Will Tukaufu (a Defensive End in college) and New England's Patrick Chung are all former Ducks.
That number will be four if LeGarrette Blount lines up behind Tom Brady in the Patriot's run-by-committee backfield.
In addition, the PAC-12 has the most players on the team's rosters with 12, including Cal's Marshawn Lynch and Shane Vereen, and New England's Brandon Browner who is a former Oregon State Beaver. The next closest conference? The SEC with 7 players.
And, by the way, Gronk - New England TE Rob Gronkowski - is a former Arizona Wildcat.
Washington State does not have a player represented on either roster, the University of Washington Huskies have 1, Seattle receiver Jermaine Kearse.
