26 Players and 1 Coach in Super Bowl LIII played in Rivalry Games

We know how many great players from Great American Rivalry Series games go on to make a name for themselves at the highest level, but this year, an astonishing 26 players from Rivalry games will suit up for the biggest football game of the year. We’ll be watching the game to see if one of these guys can reel in the MVP award (looking at you Aaron Donald) and etch his name in the history books Not only that, but Head Coach of the Los Angeles Rams, Sean McVay, also played in one of our Rivalry games.
