Former Tide players
Saban should be proud, he has four players in this year’s game. And now I’m curious what his game day snack of choice is… I’m a pizza girl myself.
According to Alabama Athletics, the four former Alabama players include:
- A’Shawn Robinson, Defensive Lineman
- Terrell Lewis, Linebacker
- Jonah Williams, Offensive Lineman
- Damion Square, Defensive End
Former Auburn players
You’ll see a former Tiger in the game as well.
According to NCAA.com, C.J. Uzomah, a Tight End for the Cincinnati Bengals, is set to take the field.
Other SEC standouts
According to ProU Sports, 33 of the 160 players present came from the SEC. Georgia and LSU take the cake for the highest representation this year. Each team has six players representing them, including the starting quarterbacks.
That’s right, you’ll see 2019 Heisman Trophy winner and Bengals QB, Joe Burrow. Burrow led the LSU team from 2018-19, after starting his college career at Ohio State. Georgia’s former QB Matthew Stafford will lead the Rams.
So, will you be *reluctantly* cheering for LSU or Georgia?
