50-DAY COUNTDOWN TO SUPER BOWL 50
A DAY-BY-DAY, SUPER BOWL-BY-SUPER BOWL LOOK
AT THE IMPACT OF BLACK COLLEGE PLAYERS ON SUPER BOWLS I THRU 49

by Lut Williams

Today begins a 50-day countdown to Super Bowl 50 focusing on the players from America’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities that have graced the Super Bowl stage.
These players are numerous, beginning with Super Bowl I right thru Super Bowl XLIX, including three Super Bowl MVPs, several more that shoud have been MVPs, holders of 29 Super Bowl records and a host of others that have distinguished themselves in America’s No. 1 sporting event.

However, before we break down black college players in each of the first 49 Super Bowls, we’d like to test your knowledge of the history of black college players in the big game.

See if you can answer the 100 questions below now, and then try again once we’ve given you the blow by blow of the 49 gems as we get nearer to Feb. 7 and Super Bowl 50.

We’ll give you the answers just prior to Feb 7.

But before you begin, I’d like to offer you a refresher about the influence of black college players in the Super Bowl from the Black College Sports Blog entitled, “You Better Recognize"

Now here are the questions.
