Super Bowl XLVII is set with the San Francisco 49ers taking on the Baltimore Ravens. As you'd expect, both teams have a few connections to SEC schools. Only Kentucky (poor Kentucky) doesn't have some kind of representative in the game.
And yes, I know that anyone mentioned here who is connected to Missouri and Texas A&M would technically pertain to the Big Eight or Big 12*, but if the Big Ten's official commercials can invoke Nebraska in the '90s, then I'll go ahead and put them here. This is also active roster only.
*The sole Aggie is young, so no potential SWC ties there. I'm disappointed too.
San Francisco 49ers
|Greg Jackson||Asst. Secondary coach||Played safety at LSU|
|Jim Leavitt||LB Coach||Missouri Grad Asst. 1978-79|

There are 13 main coaches and players with SEC connections. Some are tenuous, like Leavitt's time as a GA at Mizzou, but that's a decent enough number. The Ravens have one more though.
|Teryl Austin||Secondary coach||Florida DC 2010|
|Andy Moeller||Offensive line coach||Missouri asst. 1994-99|
|Ted Monachino||LB Coach||Played LB at Missouri|
|Matt Weiss||Def. Quality Control||Played punter at Vanderbilt|
|Michael Oher||OT||Ole Miss|
|Pernell McPhee||DE||Mississippi State|
|Morgan Cox||Long Snapper||Tennesse|
The Ravens have 14 people with some sort of SEC connection. They have a few more notable names, like Mount Cody and Blind Side Oher.
One notable thing about the positions here is that the teams have only two combined offensive skill position players, and one of them (Thompson) basically never plays. Defense and line play are crucial in the SEC, and that is where these teams have largely mined the conference for talent.
