This Sunday the Kansas City Chiefs will try to defend their title as Super Bowl Champions against Tom Brady's Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV. Six years ago the Seattle Seahawks were in a similar situation against Brady. Before a disaster at the goal line, former Kentucky wide receiver Chris Matthews was the Seahawks' unlikely hero.  An undrafted rookie, Matthews did not catch a pass in the regular season. After recovering a pivotal onside kick in the NFC Championship Game, Matthews had four receptions for 109 yards and a touchdown in the final football game of the 2014 NFL season.  Ahead of Super Bowl Sunday KSR sat down for a one-on-one interview with the only Wildcat to score a touchdown in the Super Bowl, Chris Matthews. He spoke candidly about...  -- How Randall Cobb helped him grow on and off the field ahead of the 2010 UK football season.  -- Was he actually working at Footlocker when he got the call from The Seahawks?  -- The toughest defensive back to face in practice from the Legion of Boom.   -- An inside look of the deflated Seahawks locker room after Pete Carrol's infamous goal line pass.  -- His fondest memories from UK.   -- What was going through his head before the iconic onside kick.  -- Who you got, Lynn Bowden or Randall Cobb?  Learn more about your ad choices.

A pair of players that battled in the trenches on UK's defensive line for years sat down with KSR to discuss their time in Lexington. Since arriving on campus in 2017, Quinton Bohanna and Phil Hoskins helped Kentucky to a 30-20 record and three straight bowl wins. Anchors on the defensive line, the two combined for more than 110 tackles, 16 tackles for loss, six sacks, four pass deflections, a fumble recovery and an interception. The big boys in the middle of Kentucky's stout defense are no strangers to trash talk. Now outside of the athletic department's grasp (well, Phil still hasn't completely ruled out returning for one more year), they took the gloves off and spoke their minds for an hour. Not only is the football talk insightful, it's hilarious. They pull no punches, especially when it comes to the University of Louisville. A few other topics touched on... -- What Q said to NC State's Bailey Hockman after he threw an interception. -- Why the Gator Bowl was the most meaningful bowl trip. -- Origins of the Big Snacc nickname. -- What it was like playing alongside Josh Allen. -- Their favorite teams to beat. -- Conferences outside of the SEC are playing pee wee football. -- The best players they've ever seen on a football field. -- What makes Mark Stoops a coach they would want their sons to play for.
