Big 12 Trails Only SEC, Big Ten in Super Bowl LVII Players

NFL: AFC Championship-Cincinnati Bengals at Kansas City Chiefs

Super Bowl LVII is set for Sunday, February 12, with the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles battling for the Lombardi Trophy.

With two 53-man rosters, there are plenty of schools and conferences that will be represented in the biggest football game of the year.

The Big 12 is one of the best-represented conferences in the game, with 11 active players. That trails only the SEC (21) and the Big Ten (16) and is tied with the ACC. The Pac-12, the last of the “Power Five” conferences, actually ranks behind the AAC (10) and FCS or Lower Programs (10) with nine players in the game.

 

Here’s a look at the players representing the Big 12 in the Super Bowl.
