Several of them with 3; Notre Dame comes to mind. Also Alabama and California. Another school I think a Big-10er, will think on that. I'm gonna try not to google it if I can. If not I'll look it up after ten minutes.

Namath, Stabler,Starr-Alabama
Morton-California-also Joe Kapp (barely qualifies as he played most of his career in the CFL, then 2 seasons w/ the Vikings and 1 season with the Patriots, but still qualifies.
Montana, Theismann-Notre Dame-also Daryle "The Mad Bomber Lamonica"

Update-ten minutes are up. Cal comes in with four, I had forgotten about Aaron Rogers. He actually started his college at a community college, then transferred to Cal. Another reason I like Rodgers, he didn't hit college ball with a lot of fanfare and hype.

Still thinking on the 4th one.

Only rule is they had to start at least one game at the college and one Super Bowl. Double H, I'll give you a hint, the 4th Cal QB did not graduate from there due to having to compete against two other quarterbacks who were considered better than he was but who did not play in a Super Bowl.

Default senior moment has subsided

Thought of that third Big 10 school, doesn't matter much with Cal coming in at four. Purdue-Bob Griese, Len Dawson, and Drew Breeze. Shoulda known the first two-Dawson and Griese had a field day against the Broncos for the most part of their careers. I was unfortunate to witness those in person!

Still thinking on the 4th Cal guy.

Dawson beat one of the Cal QB's, Joe Kapp. Kapp was the last Cal QB to play in the Rose Bowl (1959).

Aikman ended up at UCLA after beginning his college career at Oklahoma before getting injured. Jamelle Holieway took over and never looked back.

There's a good clue for Double H: the 4th Cal QB transferred in his junior year to a school in the same conference as the one Aikman left.
