PHOENIX — The Seattle Seahawks were on the verge of becoming the first back-to-back Super Bowl champions since the New England Patriots.

However, they were stopped by the Patriots, with a critical goal-line interception that allowed New England to prevail over Seattle, 28-24.

Siliga is the first former Ute to win a Super Bowl ring since Paul Kruger did with Baltimore in 2013.

Several players with Utah connections figured prominently in the game. Former Utah State linebacker Bobby Wagner played a monster game for Seattle, making 12 tackles for the Seahawks. He also finished with an interception that led to a Seattle scoring drive.

Former local college and prep star Sealver Siliga made an impact for the Patriots, who won their fourth Super Bowl title. The former Utah and Copper Hills star made four tackles for New England, which has earned all of its titles under coach Bill Belichick.
