FINALLY … the Big 12 has a Super Bowl-winning starting quarterback.
It’s sort of amazing, but remember, Oklahoma being a high-powered passing program is a relatively recent thing.
No one from Texas has ever gotten it done. No one from Oklahoma State, Kansas, or even from former Big 12/Big 8 schools Nebraska, Texas A&M, or Missouri.
With Kansas City’s 31-20 win over San Francisco, Patrick Mahomes gave Texas Tech the honor of having a Super Bowl champion quarterback as the Chiefs got past the 49ers.
Texas Tech now has a Super Bowl-winning starting quarterback before USC, Miami, Oklahoma, Florida, Ohio State, Penn State, Texas, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Nebraska, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech, Washington and Arizona State.
But which schools can claim the most Super Bowl-winning starting quarterbacks?
