Super Bowl

As the confetti rained down on the red and yellow uniforms of the Kansas City Chiefs, three former Mississippi State University bulldogs earned their super bowl rings, marking a total of 25 maroon and white kisses on the Vince Lombardi trophy. 

Most Notably, Chris Jones, a former defensive tackle from Houston, Mississippi, had three pass deflections and a tackle in the Chiefs' comeback win. Jones became one of the 24 MSU players to ever win a super bowl. 

Martinas Rankin, an offensive tackle from Jackson, Mississippi, missed the game due to an injury sustained in November. Braxton Hoyett, a defensive tackle from Alexander City, Alabama, was on the practice squad and did not play in the game either.
