Which College Team Can Boast of the Most Super Bowl Influence? Faniacs wondered. We came up with a points system: three points for an MVP; two points for a victorious Super Bowl Coach, and one point for the losing Super Bowl Coach. We have a full table at the end of this article.

But who won? We had USC in first with 14 points, Michigan with 13 points, and San José State University with 11 points? So what was the key?

For USC it was mixture of coaching and running backs, for Michigan Tom Brady, and for San Jose: Bill Walsh and Dick Vermeil.

Of course this arbitrary. In our table we find it interesting how much small-schools non-division-one play a big role in the Super Bowl. Just goes to show effort and steadfastness is more important than pedigree.
