Rutgers may be a bit of a running joke in the Big Ten since they joined the conference, and for good reasons, but the Scarlet Knights have some bragging rights in this year’s Super Bowl matchup even against the likes of Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame, LSU and this year’s reigning national champions, Clemson.

Rutgers has more players on Super Bowl rosters of the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons than any other college football program.

Yep, THAT Rutgers.
