Nnadi and Erving returned to Miami Gardens, were both players have a storied past:

Erving finished his career undefeated against the Hurricanes and Nnadi took part in a game that would become part of FSU-Miami legend.

Their success in the stadium has yet to come to an end as both will head home Super Bowl Champions.

Nnadi set the tone, making the first play of the game for the Kansas City defense, recording a tackle for a loss on San Francisco’s Tevin Coleman. Nnadi would finish the game with 4 tackles (3 solo) and a tackle for a loss.

Erving served as a backup offensive linemen in this game, but saw the field when Kansas City turned to their heavier running packages, including sealing the back end of Mahomes’ opening rushing touchdown:

Cam’s Super Bowl ring will look great next to the National Championship one. Plus, he’ll finally get the opportunity for that White House visit he missed out on.

Congratulations to both of these former ’Noles on an incredible accomplishment.
