Tennessee will be represented at the Super Bowl for the 10th consecutive season thanks to Cordarrelle Patterson and John Kelly.
While that number is impressive, it’s not the best in the nation as Georgia and LSU have each been represented at 18 consecutive Super Bowls, which does represent the top mark nationally. While Tennessee can’t claim the consecutive season mark, the Volunteers can claim another impressive Super Bowl stat — no SEC school has sent more players to the Super Bowl than Tennessee.
Patterson and Kelly push the all-time mark to 63 active players from Tennessee that will play in a Super Bowl. The only school that can top that mark is Miami, which will have 64 total in program history with the addition of New England offensive lineman Ufomba Kamalu this season.
Georgia ranks as second in the SEC in this category with 50 active players sent to the Super Bowl since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. The Bulldogs add Sony Michel (New England), Todd Gurley and Ramik Wilson (Los Angeles) to their list now that Super Bowl LIII has been finalized.
