Another year, another former set of Wisconsin Badgers slated to play on the biggest stage.

The New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles both clinched Super Bowl LII berths on Sunday. With that, former Wisconsin running backs James White and Corey Clement, along with defensive tackle Beau Allen, will have the opportunity to play inside U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis for a world championship.

White scored one touchdown while also racking up three receptions for 22 yards in New England’s 24-20 comeback victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Last week against the Tennessee Titans, he also tallied two touchdowns to advance to Sunday’s AFC Championship game. He caught 56 passes with three touchdowns in 14 games during the regular season.

In Philadelphia’s 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings, Clement carried the ball twice for 20 yards and also caught one pass for eight yards. Allen recorded a tackle.

Safety and special teams guru Chris Maragos, a former Wisconsin walk-on and team captain, was placed on injured reserve by the Eagles on Oct. 19 after suffering a knee injury.

Clement ran for 321 yards (4.3 yards per carry) with four touchdowns during the regular season, plus two receiving touchdowns. Allen recorded 20 tackles and a sack. In Philadelphia’s 15–10 win over Atlanta last week in the NFC Divisional round, Clement caught five passes for 31 yards.
