If you’re a WVU fan looking for a team to cheer in the Super Bowl, you should take a look at the Philadelphia Eagles.

Philly has four Mountaineers on its active roster — CB Rasul Douglas, LB Najee Goode, RB Wendell Smallwood and WR Shelton Gibson — which is tied with Wisconsin, Florida, Florida State, Michigan, Oregon and Arkansas for the second-largest number of alumni from any one school in the Super Bowl. And all four have made some sort of contribution to the Eagles’ cause this season.

Douglas, a rookie and a 2017 third-round pick, has two interceptions and 25 total tackles for Philadelphia this season. Goode, a sixth-year player used mostly on special teams, has 22 tackles. Second-year back Smallwood has 174 yards and a touchdown on 47 carries, and Gibson, a rookie and a fifth-round pick, has two catches for 11 yards.

There are no Mountaineers on the New England Patriots roster, so your game-day loyalties wouldn’t need to be split.
