Easy. Which team has more Buckeyes? In fact...it's no coincidence SF has the most OSU players on their team and they are where they are.
Have to go with San Fran in this one. Little brother steals the spotlight again.

Rooting hard against the Ravens.
Buckeyes VS. A murderous attention whore. Give me the Buckeyes anytime.

I have to go with San Francisco here too. Both have really good D's, but I think Kaepernick's versatility as both a passer and runner can pose issues for Baltimore's D. I think this is a great matchup, though, but I think San Fran just edges Baltimore late.
The Ravens have had trouble stopping the run all year which will be the deciding factor in this one. The 49ers are peaking in the run game with Capernick, Gore, & LaMichael James. Their game plan between Green Bay & Atlanta was fantastic - run action from Capernick kept freezing defenders & forcing them to commit to stopping the threat of him running which opened up nice wholes off tackle for Gore & LaMichael James, especially on two of their touchdown strikes from 20-15 yards out.
If the 49ers tie up Ray Rice early & allow this 49er team to pin their ears back, it could be a comfortable win for SF.

Ray Lewis will break Colin Kaepernick's neck the first time he decides to keep on the read-option... inevitably leading to an Alex Smith pick 6 to Ed Reed, and a Ravens victory.
I'm a bengals fan and hate the Ravens as much as the next guy. But I got nothing but love for Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, and I want to see them go out winners.
I'd rather see them leave with broken kneecaps, but that's just my opinion.
A stolen team vs. a team coached by one of Michigan's alltime most annoying players. Where's the "suicide" vote button?
I picked Baltimore, just because as a Browns fan I have a sick sense for these things (the Steelers and Ravens were a combined 7-0 in Super Bowls until 2 years ago). Besides, the run-up for this game with the Ray Lewis storyline is unnervingly similar to what happened with the Steelers and Jerome Bettis in 2005. The average pro wrestling match was a paragon of fair athletic competition by comparison.
Didn't watch a second of the Super Bowl the first time the Ravens were in it; won't watch this one either.

Just an FYI, the Steelers have lost 2 Super Bowls. They lost to Dallas in 1996 (the 1995 season) in Super Bowl XXX.
