Who has the longest punt return in Super Bowl history?
After Sunday night, the answer is former Penn State wide receiver Jordan Norwood, who returned a punt 61 yards in Denver's 24-10 victory over Carolina in Super Bowl 50 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
Norwood was one of 16 former Big Ten stars competing in Super Bowl 50, and one of nine, not including Vernon Davis, who played at Maryland before the school entered the Big Ten, to win an NFL championship ring.
