The Super Bowl matchup is set, with the hometown Kansas City Chiefs taking on the 49ers from San Francisco. The Chiefs have reached this point on the arm of their wunderkid quarterback Patrick Mahomes while a stout defense and running game lead the way for the 49ers.
Also set will be the appearance of three Kansas State football products. Linebacker Elijah Lee and cornerback D.J. Reed will represent the 49ers and wide receiver Byron Pringle for the Chiefs. All three play primarily on special teams, and hope to make an impact that leads to a Lombardi Trophy.
