Four ex-Clemson players have advanced to play in Super Bowl LVI on Feb. 13 in Los Angeles.

Three of the former Tigers play for the Cincinnati Bengals: Tee Higgins, D.J. Reader and Jackson Carman. For the Los Angeles Rams, Clemson is represented by Tremayne Anchrum Jr.


Higgins will likely play the biggest role. He made 6 catches for 103 yards in the Bengals’ win over the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game Sunday.

Reader started 15 regular season games this year and registered 3 tackles for loss. He’s in his sixth NFL season and his second with the Bengals since entering the league. He was a 5th round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Carman is a rotation offensive lineman for the Bengals who made 6 starts this season.

Anchrum is also a reserve offensive lineman. He has not yet played in a game yet this season for the Rams. He’s in his second season after being picked in the 7th round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Clemson leads all ACC teams with four former players who will be competing in the Super Bowl. Florida State will have three representatives.
