Super Bowl scorers: Where'd they go to school?

Nine former Miami Hurricanes have scored touchdowns in the Super Bowl, while six former Illinois and Notre Dame players have done so.

No other college program has more than five former players reach the end zone in the NFL's "ultimate game."

But Ohio State could have a sixth player score a Super Bowl touchdown, as New York Giants TE Jake Ballard is a Buckeyes alum. And Michigan could become the sixth school to have five former players score; Giants WR Mario Manningham is a former Wolverines star.
