The Feb. 3 Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams will feature three former Horned Frogs.

Marcus Cannon has started every game he’s played over the last three years for the AFC champion Patriots and will be making his fifth Super Bowl appearance in the last eight years.

Cannon was a three time all-conference offensive tackle during his time as a Horned Frog and earned All-American honors during his senior season.

Offensive tackle Joseph Noteboom and linebacker Travin Howard will represent the NFC Champion Rams.

Noteboom has seen action in every game of his rookie season after being selected in the third round last April.

Howard finished his career as the all-time leading tackler under head coach Gary Patterson with 343. He is currently a member of the Rams practice squad after being selected in the seventh round.

The Horned Frogs have had a player in nine of the last eleven Super Bowls.

The game will kick off at 5:30 at the Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
