2018 Super Bowl Rosters By College Conference: Pac-12, SEC Lead The Way

The 2018 Super Bowl is set, with the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles set to go head-to-head in Super Bowl 52 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Feb. 4.

In anticipation of the big game, there will be plenty of discussion surrounding what gameplan each team should utilize against their opponent while the experts will dissect each roster to find some potential mismatches that could make or break a game.

In doing so, we get a thorough analysis of the roster, like which college conferences produce the top players.

According to CBS Sports‘ conference-by-conference breakdown of the roster, it is the SEC and Pac-12 that produced the most players who will be taking the field in two weeks with 25 players each.

It comes as no surprise that rounding out the top five is the remainder of the Power 5 conferences — the Big Ten, ACC and Big Ten.

No other conference will be represented by more than 8 players, with the Sun Belt Conference being completely shutout from Super Bowl 52. Non-FBS schools combined to put more players in the big game than the MAC, Mountain West, Conference USA and Independents.
