Super Bowl Sunday. Love it, hate it, you can't ignore it.
It's the day where you can eat like five quadzillion buffalo wings (bone-in), absolutely saturate your body with empty calories (via Bud Light for most people) and create personal power rankings of commercials on the fly. Then people get tipsy and complain about a concert that he or she didn't even go to. Like, those people won tickets or spent the money to watch said performance in-person. Those are the souls that get to suffer the loss, not you. You have the opportunity to watch Animal Planet instead anyways, they don't.
Do you know how many MAC players will be in this game? Don't look it up. That's cheating.

New England Patriots are a 1-point favorite over the Seattle Seahawks
MAC players involved
New England Patriots
#11 Julian Edelman- Tom Brady's go-to receiver in the Pats' offense. Stud Muffin is no virgin to making former MAC footballers a big part in his success. Don't forget, the MAC had Randy Moss before Brady did. Edelman played his college ball at Kent State, but as a quarterback. He still shows love to his alma matter.
#67 Josh Cline- An offensive lineman that's been with the New England staff since 2013. A second-year player out of Kent State that signed as an undrafted free agent, Cline's appeared in 19 games for the Patriots including five starts.
#94 Chris Jones- Jones was an awesome defensive lineman for Bowling Green not too long ago, and he's still doing his thing for the Patriots. In his first two seasons in the NFL, he's recorded 79 tackles, nine sacks in 28 games (23 starts).
#67 Landon Cohen- There's only one former MAClete on the Seahawks roster, but his story is actually really neat. Not too long ago, he was taking care of his valet parking business in South Carolina. He went to Ohio.
