Aaron Rodgers had the unenviable task of replacing Brett Favre as the Green Bay Packers starting quarterback. Desmond Bishop had to wait a long time to crack the starting lineup and become a solid contributor to Dom Capers Packer defense. Both of these under-the-radar California Golden Bears football greats have now made it to Super Bowl XLV after beating the Chicago Bears in the NFC Championship Game 21-14. Rodgers and Bishop will be playing in their first ever Super Bowls.
The Green Bay Packers will take on the Pittsburgh Steelers, who beat the New York Jets in the AFC Championship Game. This will be the first ever meeting between the Packers and Steelers in the Super Bowl; these two successful franchises have combined to win nine Super Bowls in their storied histories. This storystream will be dedicated to all the big stories and news to the two Cal football players competing in this contest.
