Three Former Georgia Bulldogs to Play in Super Bowl XLVIII

Three former Georgia Bulldogs are set to play in Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, Feb. 2.

The match-up will feature the Denver Broncos vs. the Seattle Seahawks. Knowshon Moreno and Champ Bailey play for Denver, while Chris Clemons plays for Seattle.

Moreno, who played for UGA in 2007 and 2008, led Denver in rushing in the 2013 regular season with 1,038 yards on 241 attempts and 10 touchdowns. He also caught 60 passes for 548 yards and three TD’s.

In the postseason, Moreno has rushed 37 times for 141 yards and a touchdown and has also caught three passes for 34 yards.

Champ Bailey is a seasoned veteran, having played cornerback in the NFL for 15 seasons. Bailey was drafted by the Washington Redskins back in 1999.

Bailey has battled the injury bug this season. To that end, he had only 14 combined tackles in the regular-season and no interceptions. In Denver’s two playoff games, Bailey has seven combined tackles.

Should the Denver Broncos win the Super Bowl, you just might see Champ Bailey retire from the NFL and go out on top.

Seattle’s lone player from the Georgia Bulldogs is defensive end Chris Clemons. Clemons, who played linebacker at UGA, left the Bulldogs after his junior season and went undrafted in 2003.

After spending two seasons with Washington (2004-05), one with Oakland (2007), and two with Philadelphia (2008-09), Clemons was signed by Seattle and he is now in his fourth season with the Seahawks.

In the 2013 regular season, Clemons had 24 combined tackles (12 unassisted), 4.5 sacks, and one forced fumble. In the playoffs, Clemons has six combined tackles (two unassisted).

Good luck to all three Bulldogs in the Super Bowl!
