McDaniel Is 40th Vol To Win Super Bowl

Feb. 2, 2014


NEW YORK -- Defensive lineman Tony McDaniel and his Seattle Seahawks topped the Denver Broncos, 43-8, in Super Bowl XLVIII. It marked the 40th time a former Vol won the Super Bowl and seventh in eight years.

McDaniel made one tackle for the Seahawks in the game as Seattle limited the Broncos to 300 total yards.

McDaniel played for the Vols from 2003-05. Seattle's staff also included former Vols assistant and interim head coach Kippy Brown, who serves as the Seahawks wide receivers coach.

At least one Vol has played in 22 of the last 23 Super Bowls and one has won in seven of the last eight Super Bowls.

Tennessee led all schools with five players in the Super Bowl including four the Denver Broncos.

Peyton Manning set a Super Bowl record with 34 completions on 49 attempts for 280 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. Punter Britton Colquitt had two punts for 60 yards. On defense, Malik Jackson made five tackles and had a pass break-up. Robert Ayers had one tackle for Denver.
