The Super Bowl unites football fans everywhere, and one common question that seems to come up at every gathering for the big event is, "Now where did he play again?"

We have broken down the active rosters from the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers to see which college programs will have the most representatives in New Orleans for the big game.

With headliners like Frank Gore, Ray Lewis, Ed Reed and Bryant McKinnie -- 27 Pro Bowls combined -- it should come as no surprise that Miami is at the top of the list with five players on the combined 53-man rosters. Marshall, Ohio State, Oregon, Texas and Utah fall just behind The U with four players each.

As far as conferences go, the SEC leads the way with 23 players while not having any schools in the top six of the list below. The ACC and Big Ten each has 19 players in the Super Bowl based on 2012's membership, getting a boost from Miami and Ohio State, respectively.
