Super Bowl: Watch for four ex-Utah collegians

Beadles, McQuistan, Turbin, Wagner will all see action Sunday.

Four players from three college football programs in Utah will play in Super Bowl XLVIII. Here’s where to look for them:

Zane Beadles, Denver (No. 68) • Beadles, from Hillcrest High School and the University of Utah, is the Broncos’ left guard. He’s a mainstay of a line that has allowed quarterback Peyton Manning to be sacked only 20 times in 18 games this season.

Paul McQuistan, Seattle (No. 67) • McQuistan, from Weber State, has started most of the season for the Seahawks at left guard or left tackle, amid injuries to other offensive linemen. His amount of playing time may vary, but he’s important to Seattle’s running game.

Robert Turbin, Seattle (No. 22) • Turbin, from Utah State, will appear at intervals of the game in relief of running back Marshawn Lynch. He regularly plays in third-down passing situations, when his blocking ability is valuable.

Bobby Wagner, Seattle (No. 54) • Wagner, a linebacker from Utah State, will be visible in the middle of the Seahawks’ defense. He’ll be asked to make a lot of tackles and cover receivers in a zone defense, while blitzing occasionally.
