Jan 30

Linebacker Terrell Suggs (Ravens), long snapper Brian Jennings (49ers) and injured wide receiver Kyle Williams (49ers) will represent the Maroon and Gold this Sunday in Super Bowl XLVII.

They are the 39th, 40th and 41st Sun Devils, respectively, to be on a Super Bowl roster.

·      Eighteen Sun Devils have won a Super Bowl

·      A Sun Devil has been on a Super Bowl roster in each of the past eight games, and at least one Sun Devil has been on a Super Bowl roster in 18 of the last 21 games (excluding 1995, 2001 and 2005).

 ·      This is the first Super Bowl for all three former Sun Devils.

·      Suggs is the fourth ASU consensus All-American to play in a Super Bowl (Mike Haynes, Mike Richardson and David Fulcher)

·      Suggs is the second ASU Lombardi Award winner to play in a Super Bowl (Grey Ruegamer)

With three Sun Devils, ASU is tied for eighth among all college programs for the most former players on a Super Bowl XLVII roster.

·      ASU is one of 15 college programs with a former player on both active rosters

·     Of those 15, ASU is one of nine college programs that had a player win the Super Bowl last season (Justin Tryon, Giants)

·      ASU is one of six college programs to have a starter on both teams (ASU, Maryland, Miami, Ole Miss, Rutgers and Texas)

 

This is the 13th time in Super Bowl history that at least two Sun Devils are on a roster

The game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers will mark just the fourth time in Super Bowl history that three Sun Devils will be on the competing teams’ rosters.

·      1973 – Mike Fanucci, Jerry Smith and Charley Taylor – Washington Redskins

·      1996 – Darren Woodson, Jon Baker and Shante Carver – Dallas Cowboys

·      2002 – J.R. Redmond and Grey Ruegamer – New England Patriots; Adam Archuleta – St. Louis Rams

If the 49ers win on Sunday, it will mark just the fourth time that Sun Devil teammates have hoisted the Lombardi Trophy together

·      1978 – Bob Breunig and Danny White – Dallas Cowboys

·      1996 - Darren Woodson, Jon Baker and Shante Carver – Dallas Cowboys

·      2002 – J.R. Redmond and Grey Ruegamer – New England Patriots

If the 49ers are defeated on Sunday, it will mark the fifth time that Sun Devil teammates have been on the losing side together

·      1979 - Bob Breunig and Danny White – Dallas Cowboys

·      1983 – Larry Gordon and Bruce Hardy – Miami Dolphins

·      1989 – David Fulcher and Skip McClendon – Cincinnati Bengals

·      2004 – Jason Kyle and Damien Richardson – Carolina Panthers
