The Fighting Irish owned the 1980s as Joe Montana and Joe Theismann claimed a combined five Super Bowl titles from 1981-1989. Montana led the San Francisco 49ers to four titles, while Theismann led the Washington Redskins to a title in 1982.
Michigan joined Notre Dame atop this list last year after Tom Brady lead the Patriots to another title. Brady has won five Super Bowls with the Patriots — 2001, 2003, 2004, 2014 and 2017 — and a sixth this year would put Michigan ahead of everyone.
4 Super Bowl-Winning Quarterbacks
Several schools have produced four Super Bowl-winning QBs.
Alabama had four Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks on its resume by the mid-1970s but hasn't produced a Super Bowl-winning quarterback since. Bart Starr led the Packers to wins in Super Bowl I and Super Bowl II, Joe Namath picked up win No. 3 for the Tide with the Jets in Super Bowl III, and Ken Stabler added the fourth in 1976, leading the Oakland Raiders to a victory in Super Bowl XI.
Purdue, like Alabama, produced four Super Bowl-winning QBs with three different quarterbacks. Len Dawson led the Kansas City Chiefs to a victory in Super Bowl IV, Bob Griese led the Miami Dolphins to wins in Super Bowls VII and VIII, and Drew Brees and the Saints took home a victory in Super Bowl XLIV.
Stanford rounds out the list of schools who have produced four Super Bowl-winning QBs. Jim Plunkett took the Oakland and later Los Angeles Raiders to titles in 1980 and 1983, and John Elway and the Denver Broncos won back-to-back Super Bowls in 1997 and 1998.
