Former Hawkeye Bryan Bulaga is a Super Bowl Champion

Not only did Bryan Bulaga make history this past Sunday, he also joined an elite group of former Hawkeyes that have won the Super Bowl.

Bulaga became the youngest player to ever start a Super Bowl contest at the ripe old age of 21 years and 322 days old.  Bulaga played in all 20 games for the Packers this year, starting 16 of those games at Right Tackle. 

Bulaga joins Dallas Clark & Bob Sanders (2007 Super Bowl Champions - Indianapolis Colts), Erik Jensen (2006 Super Bowl Champion - Pittsburgh Steelers), and Kevin Kasper & Zeron Flemister (2005 Super Bowl Champions - New England Patriots) as the only Hawkeyes that played under Head Coach Kirk Ferentz to go on and win a Super Bowl.
