Chris Clemons, Travis Jones are latest Bulldogs to earn Super Bowl rings

ATHENS — Well, Super Bowl XLVIII is in the books, football games are officially over until fall and two more Georgia Bulldogs will be fitted for Super Bowl rings.

The Seattle Seahawks rolled over the Denver Broncos 48-3. Defensive end Chris Clemons (UGA 2000-02) played a big part in it, recording three tackles and a sack and forcing two fumbles for the Seahawks. One of Clemons’ coaches is none other than Travis Jones (1990-94), defensive captain of the 1994 Bulldogs. They join a long list of Bulldogs who have had the opportunity to lift the Vince Lombardi trophy. Clemons is the 27th to do it as a player, 39 including players on the NFL championship teams before the Super Bowl

Cornerback Champ Bailey (1996-98) and running back Knowshon Moreno (2006-08) fell short of the goal playing for the Broncos. Moreno had five carries for 17 yards and three receptions for 20 yards before being sidelined early in the second half with a back injury. Bailey had four tackles but not pass break-ups or interceptions.

That continues a pretty good streak for Georgia. The Bulldogs have had a player play in the Super Bowl now in 13 consecutive seasons and 53  players total.

Georgia is, of course, the only school to have produced three Super Bowl MVPs with safety Jake Scott (Miami, Super Bowl VII), running back Terrell Davis (Denver, Super Bowl XXXII) and wide receiver Hines Ward (Super Bowl XL).
