The New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles will face off in Super Bowl LII on Feb. 4, and as a college football fan, you only have one question on your mind about this matchup: Which schools did the players go to?
Well, they went to a lot of different schools, and we've broken down the rosters of both teams for you. It turns out that when you put the active rosters and injured reserve list into play, the college with the most representation in Super Bowl LII this year is ... Stanford.
