EUGENE, OR (KPTV) -

Some of the highest profile former Ducks football players in recent history will be facing off against each other in The Super Bowl.

Five Ducks in all are on the rosters for the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers.

Running back LaMichael James was a Heisman Trophy finalist for the Oregon Ducks and scored a touchdown in the NFC championship game in the 49ers victory over the Atlanta Falcons Sunday.

His former teammate at Oregon, defensive tackle Will Tukuafu, is also his current teammate on the 49ers.

They will face off against the former standout defensive end for the University of Oregon, Haloti Ngata. The multi-time Pro Bowl selection helped lead the Ravens to an upset victory over the New England Patriots in the AFC title game Sunday.

He is joined on the sidelines by former Ducks quarterback Dennis Dixon and tight end Ed Dickson.

Dixon is listed on Baltimore's practice squad.

The Super Bowl is Feb. 3.

No Oregon State Beavers are on either team's roster.
