The Northwest will be well represented in the Super Bowl next weekend, and that includes the University of Oregon. The Ducks will have four former players in the game, according to CBS Sports.
Coming off a loss to Ohio State in the National Championship was disappointing. Former Safety Patrick Chung and Running Back LeGarrette Blount with the New England Patriots along with former Center Max Unger and Fullback Will Tukuafu in Seattle have a chance for a Championship of their own.
Unger has been a stalwart at Center for Seattle starting in forty seven games. He has played at both Center and Guard and is a versatile player in the National Football League.
Blount started the season with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but walked out on the team and was cut. He was picked up by New England and has been a force during the regular season and the post season. Last weekend against Indianapolis he rushed for three touchdowns in a blowout victory.
The Pac-12 Conference has twelve players between Seattle and New England in the game, more than any other Conference. The ACC has seven former players and the Big Ten has five, including former Michigan Quarterback Tom Brady.
Super Bowl Forty-Nine kicks off next Sunday just after 3pm Pacific Time on NBC.
