SB Nation 2014 NFL Playoff Coverage

Six months after college football kicked off, we're down to one last football-like-substance until spring football. While we're partisan and will take a BCS CFP bowl any day of the week (particularly the new schedule which has three on New Year's Eve and one more as well as the two actual playoff semifinals on New Year's Day), our last decade of Super Bowls have been phenomenal – and this one should be no different.

Whether you're watching the game on FOX in Columbus or watching online via Fox Sports Go (which won't require a login during the game) from anywhere in the country, anytime we get to see the best offense in the sport take on the best defense, we're better for it. In the four previous times this has gone down in a Super Bowl, the defense has wound up on top three of them.

Interestingly enough, this marks only the second time the #1 seed in the AFC and the #1 seed in the NFC have meet in the Super Bowl. The last was in the 1994 matchup between Dallas and Buffalo, which the Cowboys won 30-13 (though the Bills led 13-6 at the half).

In terms of Ohio State rooting interests, as we mentioned, there aren't any OSU player alums. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was the secondary coach at Ohio State under Earle Bruce (whom he'd worked under previously at Iowa State) in Bruce's first year as the Buckeyes head coach. Carroll left after one season to take the defensive coordinator role under Monte Kiffin at NC State. Broncos defensive line coach Jay Rodgers was also a recruiting intern under John Cooper in 2000. Here's a complete list of those with Big Ten ties participating in this evening's big game:
