After an enthralling postseason that saw the eventual number seeds in both the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC) prevail, Super Bowl LVIII will feature the Kansas City Chiefs against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Super Bowl is arguably America’s premier sporting event with last year’s edition witnessing close to 100 million fans tune in. In fact, the National Football League (NFL), is the richest sports league in the world generating over 16 billion dollars in revenue and possessing some of the world’s richest sports franchises. In fact, 30 of the 32 teams made up Forbes’ 50 most expensive sports franchises list in 2022.
The interim between the conference championship games and the Super Bowl also witnessed the annual Pro Bowl and the NFL’s annual award ceremony. In fact, the award ceremony was especially sweet for the Chiefs with their quarterback Patrick Mahomes winning the Most Valuable Player award for this past season.
While Mahomes will be one of the players to watch out for, the quarterback has been in instrumental in helping the Chiefs make at least the conference finals in each of the seasons he’s played as the lead quarterback, winning the Super Bowl requires a team to function as unit meaning the Eagles have an equally good chance of claiming their second Super Bowl title, with their first coming in 2017.
That said any sporting event is dominated by individual stories, meaning one of the players will have the chance to shine come game day.
With that in mind, here are the colleges that have produced the most Super Bowl players and winners.
