Rebels In The Super Bowl

As the Pittsburgh Steelers advance to Super Bowl XLV with Sunday's 24-19 win over the Jets, it means an Ole Miss Rebel will once again play on football's grandest stage. As I tweeted last night, Mike Wallace is set to make the 23rd appearance by a former Ole Miss player in the Super Bowl and first since Eli Manning guided the Giants to the crown in SB XLII. Below is the full list of Rebels that have been active on Super Bowl rosters (this does not include players from practice squads such as Jermey Parnell with New Orleans last year).

I Allen Brown, TE, Green Bay
II Allen Brown, TE, Green Bay
III Larry Grantham, LB, New York Jets
VII Jim Dunaway, DT, Miami
XII Norris Weese, QB, Denver
XVI Paul Hofer, RB, San Francisco; Jim Miller, P, San Francisco
XXII Barry Wilburn, DB, Washington; Andre Townsend, DT, Denver
XXIV Wesley Walls, TE, San Francisco; Andre Townsend, DT, Denver
