Many University students are finalizing their plans for Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 7, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Kansas City Chiefs, defending Super Bowl champions.
Some Harding football athletes are making plans to watch the Super Bowl LV with their close friends. Junior defensive lineman Dalton Allen said he is looking forward to the snacks and appetizers, as well as a win for the Buccaneers.
“I will be attending a Super Bowl party, but it will be with close friends like usual,” Allen said. “Nothing really has changed in that regard, but we will be upping the ante on expectations for snacks and I can’t wait for it. I will be rooting for the Bucs — not just because they’re the underdog, but because it would be pretty cool to see Tom Brady win another Super Bowl with home field advantage playing with his new team for the first year.”
Super Bowl parties are a tradition that many people uphold, and while some plan to continue that tradition, others are being mindful of COVID-19 precautions. Senior Kyler Duncan said he plans to watch the game with his roommates instead of attending a party.
“I will probably watch the game, but just with my family unit, of course,” Duncan said.
Defensive line coach Tre’von Biglow said he will be watching the Super Bowl with his family and that he is thankful to enjoy their company for a fun evening.
“I think all my family and I will be celebrating and just having a good time together, enjoying everyone’s company — I wouldn’t want to spend it any other way,” Biglow said.
