Even though there were no Stanford players in Super Bowl 50, the game was not without its Stanford connections. Denver's GM is a Stanford legend. The Broncos practiced at Stanford Stadium over the last week. The game occurred basically in The Farm's backyard. And so it's only fitting that we check in to see how Stanford players reacted to the biggest sports event of the year.

There were many Stanford players and alumni present at the game. Some were just basking in the moment. Others had interesting journeys into the stadium:

And when the end result was finally in sight, the analysis began:

As always, Michael Rector asked the question that we were all asking:

And then for the best part of the evening. Kevin Hogan and former USC LB Su'a Cravens are training for the NFL Draft at the same facility, and made a bet over the outcome of the Super Bowl:

Let's hope that Hogan picks the only choice there is: make Su'a pick both.
