Four Chippewas Headed to Super Bowl XLV

MOUNT PLEASANT - Four former Central Michigan Chippewas will be part of Super Bowl XLV, tied for the most of any college program in the country.

Central Michigan, LSU, Ohio State and Tennessee each will have four former players on active rosters heading into the Super Bowl on Feb. 6.

Former Chippewas Cullen Jenkins, Frank Zombo and Josh Gordy are with the NFC champion Green Bay Packers, while Antonio Brown is in his rookie season with the AFC champion Pittsburgh Steelers.

Green Bay and Pittsburgh will play for the world championship in Dallas on Sunday, Feb. 6 at 6:30 p.m. More than 100,00 fans are expected to fill Cowboys Stadium for the game, and Fox will televise the game to an audience of more than 100 million in the United States. Worldwide, the game will be televised in more than 200 countries and available to approximately 1 billion potential viewers.

This is the second straight season and fifth time overall that a Chippewa has played in the Super Bowl. Tory Humphrey won Super Bowl XLIV with the New Orleans Saints in 2010.
