BATON ROUGE - Four former LSU football players will be after a Super Bowl ring on Sunday when the Green Bay Packers face the Pittsburgh Steelers at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, in Super Bowl XLV.

The Green Bay roster features three former Tigers in backup quarterback Matt Flynn, fullback Quinn Johnson and defensive tackle Howard Green. Starting safety Ryan Clark is the lone Tiger on the Steelers roster.

It marks the 10th straight year in which LSU has had a former football player reach the Super Bowl, which ties with Georgia as the longest current streak in the Southeastern Conference. The 10-yeark streak ranks as the third-longest in SEC history, trailing only Tennessee (17 years: 1993-2008) and Alabama (12 years: 1983-94).

LSU's also had at least one former player be part of a Super Bowl championship team for nine straight years. That streak will run to 10 this year with former Tigers serving on the roster for both teams this Sunday. Last year, LSU had three of its former players win the Super Bowl with the New Orleans Saints - Devery Henderson, Randall Gay and Marlon Favorite.
