Where Super Bowl starting QBs went to college
This will be the first Super Bowl since the 1997 season in which neither of the starting quarterbacks will be making his Super Bowl debut.
In Super Bowl XXXII, Denver’s John Elway and Green Bay’s Brett Favre were the starters. This season, it’s New England’s Tom Brady and the New York Giants’ Eli Manning.
Brady can give Michigan its fourth win by a quarterback alum in the Super Bowl; the most for any school is Notre Dame’s five. Purdue currently is second with four, and Michigan is tied with Alabama at three. Manning can give Ole Miss its second win.
Brady is the only Michigan man to start at quarterback in the Super Bowl; the same goes for Manning and Ole Miss.
Here’s a breakdown on the programs that have produced starting quarterbacks in the Super Bowl. Asterisks denote Sunday’s projected starters.
