Super Bowl Open thread: How to watch, odds, and a place to chat about SB XLVIII

Lets talk about one of the biggest sporting events of the year, even though Maryland doesn't have any horses in this fight.

So it's Sunday, not much going on in the Maryland sporting world, so we might as well talk about that little game going on in New Jersey today. Who are you all rooting for? Neither team has a former Maryland football player on the roster (boo), so I thought the next best thing was to root against the team with the most ACC players.

The Denver Broncos check in with nine former ACC players while the Seattle Seahawks check in with five (assuming you don't include Louisville, but if you did, it would only be seven). So if you want to decide your alligence via that avenue, Seattle is your team. Of course, you might think there is no way I'm rooting for the Hawks, since they're led by Russell Wilson, he formally of NC State fame. But you probably have a much more rational reasons for how you decided your rooting interests in tonight's contest, but in case you were up in the air, I hope this solves your dilemma.

Interested in how to watch the game? Various odds? Cool infographics comparing the two teams? We've got you covered thanks to the awesome folks at the SBNation mothership, like Luke Zimmermann.
