List of Texas Longhorns Who Won the Super Bowl
The Super Bowl might not be what it is today without the help of Texas Longhorns Football.
Starting in 1969, there have been 24 former Longhorns to win a Super Bowl. Perhaps four of the most important Horns were on the New York Jets team that stunned the Baltimore Colts in the third Super Bowl.
If not for the AFC/AFL representative Jets pulling the upset over the NFC’s Colts, the Super Bowl may have faded into obscurity. But, a huge upset from Joe Namath’s team made it seem like the two leagues were on even footing. And, the Big Game took off from there.
The four Longhorns on that upstart Jets team were John Elliot, Jim Hudson, Pete Lammons, and George Sauer. They played in the 1960s, which was arguably the greatest decade of Texas Longhorns football under Darrell Royal. And, they translated their skills to the most important Super Bowl of all-time.
Now, 24 former Longhorns have etched their name in history. Malcom Brown added his name to the list at Super Bowl 51 Sunday in Houston.
It will be interesting to see if Brown becomes the next two-time winner if the Patriots win another championship after Super Bowl 51.
]Four Longhorns have won multiple titles – Terry Orr with the Washington Redskins, Dan Neil with the Denver Broncos, Casey Hampton with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Aaron Ross with the New York Giants.
Overall, at least one former Longhorn has played in the last 12 Super Bowls. But, there had not been a winner in three years since Earl Thomas was on the Seattle Seahawks team that beat the Denver Broncos.
