Countdown to kickoff: #55 Mike Pouncey

Others who wore the number: Jon Demps (2005-06), Channing Crowder (2003-04), Mike Gulla (2002), Travis Carroll (2000-01), Tron LaFavor (1999), Willie Cohens (1995-98), Kenny Times (1993), Shawn Wilson (1992), Scot Brantley (1977-79), Jimmy Ray Stephens (1975), Ralph Ortega (1972-74) and Richard Kensler (1969-71)
