Nebraska’s streak of having a former player on a Super Bowl roster (active or practice squad) has reached 27 years. This season, it’s Ndamukong Suh with the Los Angeles Rams and Rex Burkhead with the New England Patriots, who is making his second straight Super Bowl appearance. (Lincoln will be represented by Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein, a Lincoln Pius X graduate.)
NU’s streak began in Super Bowl XXVII after the 1993 season, when former Huskers Nate Turner and John Parrella played for the Buffalo Bills.
Counting the 2019 Super Bowl, 63 former Huskers will have made 83 Super Bowl appearances.
Here are photos of the ex-Huskers from their days at NU and in the pros (if available).
