The Wisconsin Badgers have two former players playing in this years Super Bowl. The Badgers are known for producing elite running backs. Don’t forget, those running backs wouldn’t be elite without a great offensive lineman. Two of the 10 offensive lineman in this years Super Bowl are Wisconsin products. The two former Badgers are Rob Havenstein and David Edwards. Together these two will work to protect Matthew Stafford in pursuit of their first Super Bowl win.
