Former Arkansas Football QB now 0-2 in Super Bowls
Former Arkansas Football player Brandon Allen was one of the most prolific quarterbacks in program history when he was with the Razorbacks from 2012-2015.
The former Hog, now a back-up for Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals, unfortunately lost Super Bowl LVI against the Los Angeles Rams Feb. 13.
Allen didn’t take the field during the game, but appeared to be ready to take the field in the event Burrow was injured or couldn’t go.
Just a few years ago, in Super Bowl LIII, Allen was actually playing for the Rams and served as the back-up for Jared Goff. He never got any snaps in that game, either.
However, he still puts in the work and still wins a Super Bowl ring if his team wins. He has competed in some games, including starting in the 2021-22 regular season finale.
Sadly, Allen has now been on the losing side of both Super Bowl games in which he’s been on the roster.
Razorback fans would love to have seen a former player get a championship. It’s been a while since a former Razorback has won a Super Bowl. The most recent big game in which a Razorback won a title was in Super Bowl LI when Trey Flowers and the New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons.
Now that the Super Bowl has come and gone, we can start to look forward to the Arkansas football team getting back in to the swing of things. The team is in the midst of a key offseason and will play their first regular season game Sept. 3 vs Cincinnati.
