BATON ROUGE - Four former LSU football players will be after Super Bowl rings on Feb. 5 when the New England Patriots face the New York Giants at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

The Tigers have two former players on each roster. Cornerback Corey Webster and wide receiver Michael Clayton play for the Giants, while running backs Kevin Faulk and Stevan Ridley are on the Patriots squad. Webster, Faulk, and Ridley are on active rosters, while Clayton is on injured reserve and will not dress out for the game.

Tigers in the Super Bowl

LSU has had at least one player win a Super Bowl ring dating back to 2002. With players on both teams, that streak will be extended to a Southeastern Conference leading 11 consecutive years. 

Faulk, who has won three Super Bowl titles, will be making his fifth appearance in the game. The five appearances are the most of any former LSU player, one better than the four appearances by Roy "Moonie" Winston. Winston played in four Super Bowls during his 15-year career with the Minnesota Vikings from 1962-76.
