Corey Clement TD catch, Super Bowl 52, AP photo

Former Wisconsin running back Corey Clement (30) scores a touchdown as Patriots cornerback Johnson Bademosi (29) and free safety Devin McCourty (32) are late with the tackle during the second half of the Eagles' 41-33 win in Super Bowl LII on Sunday, Feb. 4, 2018, in Minneapolis.


In Super Bowl LII in 2018, Rookie running back Corey Clement ran just three times for 8 yards but caught four passes for 100 yards, including a 22-yard touchdown pass from Nick Foles to put Philadelphia up 29-19 with 7:48 remaining in the third quarter. The Eagles went on to win 41-33

Clement joined Torry Holt as the only rookies in Super Bowl history to have 100 receiving yards and a touchdown reception. He also joined former UW teammate James White (Super Bowl LI) and Roger Craig (Super Bowl XXIII) as the only running backs with 100 receiving yards.

Clement also was part of the fourth-and-goal gadget play that gave the Eagles a 10-point lead in the second quarter. As Foles went to “talk” to the right side of the offensive line, Clement took the direct snap out of the shotgun. He pitched the ball to tight end and former college quarterback Trey Burton, who threw to a wide open Foles for the 1-yard touchdown.
