Big Apple bound: 2 Aggies, a Ute and a Wildcat are headed to Super Bowl XLVIII

Bobby Wagner (Utah State), Seattle MLB Next » 1 of 5 « Prev
Wagner started at middle linebacker and had a game-high 15 tackles, including five solo, as the Seahawks rallied past the 49ers, 23-17. The second-year linebacker started every game he played in this year for the Seahawks, missing two due to injury.

He finished the regular season with a team-high 120 tackles, including 72 solo. Of all the local players who will participate in the Super Bowl, Wagner could have the biggest impact.

“I feel like I just know the game a lot better than I did last year,’’ Wagner told the Seattle Times before this week's game. “Last year, I felt like a little kid out there playing to play with the big boys. This year, I feel like I belong here.”

It's great to see two Aggies doing so well. Wagner's having a fantastic season and Turbin is a great backup to Lynch. Hope they do well in the Super Bowl.

GO HAWKS!

Wagner is a key piece of the Seattle defense. The Aggies have made me a bit Seattle fan.

So pleased to see these former Aggies do well. From a potato bowl loss to a Super Bowl berth in just two years!! And I bet some unknown university's only fan is just hating this, to boot.

Go Hawks! Go Aggies!
