It was a big Sunday for former Big Ten stars in NFC and AFC title games.

Four players scored at least one touchdown, with Owen Daniels (Wisconsin) hauling in a pair of scoring strikes in Denver's win vs. New England.

On defense, Kurt Coleman (Ohio State) picked off a pair of passes in Carolina's rout of Arizona, and Bradley Roby (Ohio State) sealed Denver's aforementioned AFC title game victory with an interception on New England's potential game-tying two-point conversion in the final seconds.

Before we consider how every former Big Ten star performed Sunday, let's look ahead to Super Bowl 50. A total of 16 Big Ten names will be suiting up in Santa Clara, California, paced by Denver's nine.
