Nebraska has had 57 former Huskers make 72 appearances in the Super Bowl dating back to Super Bowl II following the 1967 season. Huskers have appeared in 38 of the 50 Super Bowls. Dating back to 1993, at least one Husker has appeared in 23 straight Super Bowls.

Zaire Anderson was a member of the Denver Broncos practice squad in 2015 and was on the sideline with the Broncos when they won Super Bowl 50.

Sam Koch of the Baltimore Ravens was the most recent Husker to play in the Super Bowl, as the Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers, 34-31, in Super Bowl XLVII.

Mick Tingelhoff's four appearances in the Super Bowl with the Minnesota Vikings leads the list of all former Huskers. Unfortunately, Tingelhoff never walked away with an NFL title. Roger Craig, Grant Wistrom and Russ Hochstein each appeared in three Super Bowls with the Craig coming away with a trio of NFL championship rings to lead all former Huskers in that category.
