For two former Cougars, a Super Bowl ring with one team wasn't enough. Bart Oates, one of BYU's top talents ever on the offensive line, won three Super Bowl rings in his 11-year NFL career; Jim McMahon, a part of the Cougars' illustrious quarterback factory, won a pair of Super Bowls.

Oates started at center in each of his three Super Bowl victories, twice with the New York Giants in Super Bowls XXI and XXV, and again with San Francisco in Super Bowl XXIX. He is the only BYU player to start in three Super Bowls and have a perfect record.

McMahon's first title came with the Bears in Super Bowl XX, a team made famous in part by its dominating defense and the Super Bowl shuffle; he added a second championship when he was a backup to Brett Favre in Green Bay's 35-21 win over the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXI.
