Everything you need to know about Super Bowl XLIX!

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

After all of the deflated ball jokes, we've finally arrived to Super Bowl Sunday. The Seattle Seahawks make their second straight trip to the big game, while Tom Brady and Bill Belichick look to win their fourth Lombardi Trophy after the New England Patriots were bested by the New York Football Giants in the 2007 and 2011 seasons.

In case you just started following Rutgers, the Scarlet Knights have four players on the active roster for the New England Patriots, which makes it difficult to decide who to root for if you're a Jets fan like myself. In any case, the four players from RU ties for second most in the Super Bowl. Wisconsin leads all teams with six players, and the Big Ten has the most players of any conference (#B1G #B1G B! 1! G!).

Here are your Super Bowl #SundayKnights:
