Penn State is represented on seven of the eight teams remaining in the NFL playoffs, which reaches the divisional round this weekend. So Penn State's chances are strong that a former player will represent the program in the Super Bowl for the 50th time.
The Lions have a long Super Bowl history, having been represented in 49 of the 54 championship games since 1967. Penn State ranks fifth among college programs with 114 Super Bowl appearances.
Penn State lettermen have won 58 Super Bowl rings, including two last season (Kansas City's Stefen Wisniewski and Jordan Lucas). Among the remaining teams, only Cleveland does not have a former Penn State player on its roster.
