MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State fans will have the opportunity to watch one of the school’s all-time greats during Super Bowl XLV as Jordy Nelson and the Green Bay Packers square off against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Nelson becomes one of 18 former Wildcats to play in the biggest game in football, and one of 13 coached by Bill Snyder.

Kickoff for Super Bowl XLV will be at 5:30 p.m. from Cowboys Stadium. The game will be televised across the world to more than 150 million viewers on Fox.
