The University of Tennessee was the most well represented school at the Super Bowl on Sunday night, with five former Vols playing in the game.

But only one former Vol walked away as a Super Bowl champion.

That former Vol would be Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Tony McDaniel.

Of the five former Vols to play in the game, McDaniel was the only one on the winning team.

The others — Peyton Manning, Britton Colquitt, Malik Jackson and Robert Ayers — all were members of the losing team, the Denver Broncos.

McDaniel finished the game with only one tackle.

Undoubtedly most Vol fans were probably pulling for the Broncos, with Peyton at the helm.

Unfortunately for those fans, the game was over before halftime and turned into what will be remembered as one of the worst Super Bowls ever.
