Super Bowl 2011 Final Score: Packers Beat Steelers, Two Boston College Players Earn Rings

The Green Bay Packers are the champions of Super Bowl XLV, beating the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, 31-25. Led by Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers' three touchdowns, the Packers jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter and took a 21-10 lead into a very Black Eyed Peas-halftime. The Steelers began mounting a comeback with a touchdown in the third quarter before Green Bay responded in the fourth quarter with 10 points.

While the Patriots fans may not have had much to cheer for on Sunday (besides the Steelers loss, obviously), Boston College football fans had plenty to be proud of: B.J. Raji and Robert Francois became the 20th and 21st BC Eagles to win a Super Bowl ring, the first since Chris Snee, Mathias Kiwanuka and the Giants won Super Bowl XLIII.

Additionally, Raji and Francois join Bob Hyland and Dick Capp (Super Bowl I) and Mark Chmura (Super Bowl XXXI) as the only Eagles to win the Super Bowl as members of the Packers. (Thanks to reader Thomas for pointing out the Chmura bit.)
