Students shared their Super Bowl LVII predictions where the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs will face head-to-head for the championship ring.
Brianna Bou, a sophomore social and behavioral science major, said she is an Eagles fan and has full confidence in her team.
“I think they will win because I am a diehard Eagles fan, and I would never betray my team,” Bou said. “Jalen Hurts has a lot of potential with his team’s defense and offense.”
Bou said she is predicting a close game between the two NFL teams.
“My prediction score is 32-28 or around there,” Bou said. “I see a very close game.”
Bou said she plans to go to Philadelphia and watch the game at Lincoln Financial Field, the home of the Eagles. Although the Super Bowl is in Arizona, it is common for the teams to open up their stadiums for watch parties if they make it to the big game.
David Babigian, a sophomore diplomacy and international relations double major, said he is a fan of the New England Patriots, but he still has a prediction for the Super Bowl champion.
“The Eagles — they looked unstoppable against the Giants and the 49ers,” Babigian said. “Hurts and the Eagles D-Line are playing out of their minds.”
The Eagles have scored 69 combined points over the past two playoff games while giving up just 14 points in total.
Nicolas Rodriguez, a sophomore sports media major, said he believes the Chiefs will win the Super Bowl.
Rodriguez said he is a Giants fan, however, he said he is so confident in the Chiefs winning that he bet $20 on the team.
“The greatness of Mahomes will find a way to win,” Rodriguez said.
Evan Olszowska, a junior political science major, said he also believes the Chiefs will win.
“Eagles have a better defense, and if they have a good defensive scheme to stop Mahomes, then they have a chance.” Olszowska said. “The only issue is that no one has been able to stop Mahomes and the Chiefs.”
Olszowska said he predicts the Super Bowl will come down to a game winning touchdown with Mahomes coming in clutch in the final two minutes of the game.
“I like the Chiefs with the better quarterback and head coach,” Olszowska said.
