With the Patriots and Rams slated to play in the Super Bowl in less than two weeks, college football programs across the country will be rooting for whichever team is represented by their players.

There will be 90 players on the gameday rosters, but we now have a clearer idea of which schools will have the most players in the game.

CBS Sports released a list of schools with three or more players participating in the Super Bowl, and there was a surprise team at the top of the list.

Of the 12 schools bringing at least three to the Super Bowl, only two schools have four players representing in the big game: Georgia and Rutgers.

While Georgia is known as an NFL factory, Rutgers' presence on the top of the list will surely surprise some people.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is known for bringing Rutgers grads into the fold when most other teams tend to pass on the New Jersey-based program. Duron Harmon, Jason McCourty and Devin McCourty will all be playing for the Patriots, while Sebastian Joseph-Day will be playing for the Rams.

As for Georgia, Todd Gurley and Ramik Wilson will be representing the Rams, with Sony Michel and Isaiah Wynn playing for the Patriots.

Rounding out the list of schools with at least three teams in the Super Bowl are Auburn, Cal, Florida, Iowa, Miami (FL), Ohio State, Oregon, Oregon State, USC, and Washington.

Unsurprisingly, the SEC and Big Ten conferences dominate the rosters with 21 and 20 players in the game respectively.
