(Stats Perform) - Unsung heroes no more, former FCS players will have a chance to make an impact in football's biggest game.

On Feb. 7, a strong group that played in the lower half of Division I college football will line up for the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV.

The Chiefs will seek to repeat as Super Bowl champs after eliminating the Buffalo Bills 38-24 in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday. Three of their FCS players - Tanoh Kpassagnon (Villanova), Khalen Saunders (Western Illinois) and Alex Brown (South Carolina State) - were members of last year's championship team.

The Bucs, who beat the Green Bay Packers 31-26 in the NFC Championship Game, will become the first team to play the Super Bowl in their home stadium.
