Miami football alums are tied with USC with 126 appearances and former Hurricanes top the scoring list with 84 points entering Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday. The official Miami Hurricanes website posted on X on January 30 about the appearance record and Brett McMurphy of Action Network tweeted about the scoring.
A list by erudera in 2023 listed Miami with 124 appearances ahead of Super Bowl LVII. USC was second with 124. Deon Bush of Kansas City and Jon Feliciano of San Francisco are the only Miami alums on Super Bowl LVIII rosters. Yahoo Sports listed four USC players in Super Bowl LVIII. that would pass Miami.
Bush is in his second season with Kansas City after playing the first five years of his career with the Chicago Bears. Bush spent most of the 2023 season on the Kansas City practice squad. After playing in the final six games of the regular season, Bush appeared in all three Kansas City playoff contests.
Bush had a critical interception in the AFC Championship game at Baltimore to secure the Chiefs and Bush's second consecutive Super Bowl appearance. During the regular season, Bush had seven tackles. Bush has two tackles, two pass breakups and the critical interception during the playoffs.
Feliciano had seven starts and played 478 snaps in 16 games in his first season with San Francisco in 2023. Feliciano is currently listed as the backup left guard behind Aaron Burks. Feliciano is making his first Super Bowl appearance in his ninth season. Previously, Feliciano played with Oakland, Buffalo and the New York Giants.
Miami has held on to its lead of 84 points since a Frank Gore touchdown for San Francisco in Super Bowl XLVII versus Baltimore. Florida is second in Super Bowl scoring with 82 points. Four Florida alums are on the Kansas City roster for Super Bowl LVIII. Florida is unlikely to catch Miami in Super Bowl points on Sunday.
Penn State who is third with 81 Super Bowl points all-time has three players in the game. Two of the Penn State alums are linemen and the third is a safety. California is a distant fourth with 66 points scored from its alums. The Miami Super Bowl scoring record is likely safe for another year.
