If you're in Times Square this week, you're going to know which Texas Tech players are in the Super Bowl.

The school's billboard with wide receiver Wes Welker, center Manny Ramirez and Louis Vasquez went up on Wednesday and reads "Texas Tech University is proud of the three Red Raiders starting on Sunday."

All three start for the Denver Broncos.

Welker played for Texas Tech from 2000-03 and had eight punt returns throughout his collegiate career. It's an NCAA career record he shares with Oklahoma's Antonio Perkins. Ramirez played from 2003-06 and Vasquez played from 2005-08. Both Welker and Vasquez joined the team before the 2013 season. Ramirez signed with Denver before the 2011 season
