Super Bowl 50 is just hours away.
A total of 16 former Big Ten names will be playing for an NFL championship, not including former Maryland tight end Vernon Davis, as NFC champ Carolina faces AFC champ Denver at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
Ten of the Big Ten's 14 schools have at least one representative in Super Bowl 50, headlined by Ohio State, which features a nation's best five players (4 Carolina; 1 Denver).
Don't have a horse in the race? For what it's worth, Denver has nine former Big Ten stars, compared to Carolina's seven.
