There will be at least one Cal Bear in the Super Bowl.

NFL: NFC Divisional-Seattle Seahawks at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

At least one Golden Bear will be in the Super Bowl. Perhaps three?

Both the teams involved in the NFC Championship feature at least one Cal Bear.

  • Green Bay Packers: QB Aaron Rodgers, TE Richard Rodgers, WR Trevor Davis
  • Atlanta Falcons: C Alex Mack

A.A. Ron Rodgers completed 28-of-43 passes for 356 yards and two touchdowns and one interception while adding two rushes for 16 yards in Sunday's victory against Dallas. His first throwing score was a 34-yarder in the first quarter to Richard.

And of course Rodgers had the famous clutch throw to Cook to set up the game-winning field goal.

Davis also played in the contest for several snaps.

Mack anchored Atlanta's offensive line Saturday in a 36-20 home victory over Seattle in the first NFL playoff game of his eight-year career. The Falcons continued to be one of the NFL's top offenses, racking up 422 total yards including 323 through the air.
