NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Golden Tate became the 39th former Notre Dame football player to win a Super Bowl ring on Sunday night when his Seattle Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos, 43-8, in Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
Tate caught three passes from Russell Wilson in the win, good for 17 yards. He had a 20-yard kickoff return and did not record any punt returns, fair catching both of Denver's punts on the night.
Tate's Notre Dame teammate David Bruton also made his Super Bowl debut as Denver's special teams captain. Bruton was the first former Notre Dame football player to be a part of the opening coin toss since Justin Tuck captained the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI. Bruton did not record any stats in the game on Sunday night.
