Three Rutgers alumni headed to the Super Bowl
They will be playing with the New England Patriots
Last year Rutgers had more alumni in the Super Bowl than any other school, and while we don't have that bragging right any more, we still have alumni playing with the New England Patriots.
Devin McCourty, who played his final season at Rutgers in 2009, will play his fourth Super Bowl on Sunday.
Duron Harmon, whose senior season with the Scarlet Knights was in 2012, has won two Super Bowls, and is aiming for a third win. Fans have nicknamed him "The Closer," for his ability to intercept passes for a win in the last two minutes of a game.
Patriots newcomer, Kenny Britt, did not finish his senior season at Rutgers in 2009 in order to be eligible for the NFL draft that year. He was inactive in the last two playoff games and will most likely stay off the field on Sunday night, but he told NJ.com he was "blessed to be here." This will be his first championship game.
You can catch Super Bowl LII as the New England Patriots take on the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday on NBC. Coverage from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis will begin at 3:30 P.M. with Justin Timberlake headlining the halftime show.
