A pair of former Oregon Ducks are headed to the Super Bowl

Conference Championship weekend has come to a close, and with the Super Bowl matchup now set between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers, we know for certain that a pair of former Oregon Duck legends will be playing in the big game with a chance to earn a Super Bowl ring.

Both San Francisco defensive end Arik Armstead and cornerback Deommodore Lenoir will represent the 49ers in Las Vegas in a couple of weeks after a pair of incredible seasons with their team. On Sunday night, the 49ers beat the Detroit Lions — and former Oregon legend Penei Sewell — in dramatic comeback fashion, coming back from 17 points down in the first half.

Another Duck, offensive tackle Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu, had a chance to get to the Super Bowl on Sunday with the Baltimore Ravens, but they ended up losing to Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.

The Super Bowl will be played on February 11th in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium.
