Six LSU Alumni Still Alive In The NFL Playoffs
It's NFL Championship Sunday, where a champion will be named in both the AFC and NFC. Those two teams will move on to the Super Bowl in Houston this February. The best odds for a team to be represented in the Super Bowl doesn't belong to the Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots, or Atlanta Falcons...the best odds belong to the LSU Tigers. Because LSU is guaranteed to have representation in the game.
Here's the explanation from the Louisiana Radio Network:
"Six former LSU football players will be vying for a spot in the Super Bowl on Sunday when the NFC and AFC Championship Games take place in Atlanta and Foxborough.
Leading the way for the Tigers are three starters on the Atlanta Falcons, a group that includes rookie linebacker Deion Jones, defensive lineman Tyson Jackson and cornerback Jalen Collins. In the NFC, The Falcons host Green Bay at 2 on Sunday. The AFC Championship game has former Tiger Barkevious Mingo and the New England Patriots hosting Zach Mettenberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday."
