SU Alum's Art Jones and Jameel McClain are champs as Baltimore Ravens win Super Bowl

The Syracuse Orange Football program can now claim two more of its own are Super Bowl champions.
The Baltimore Ravens employ defensive specialists Arthur Jones (Union-Endicott, NY) and Jameel McClain and those two now, will have some new rings to wear.
Jones recorded two tackles but one of them was a sack, and he also recovered a fumble in the first quarter that stopped a San Francisco drive and led to a Ravens score.
The Ravens topped the 49ers 34-31 to win Super Bowl XLII in a wild game that featured a kickoff return for a score, a safety, a 20-point comeback, and oh yeah, a 30 minute power outage.
Below is the report from the Associated Press:
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Colin Kaepernick got tripped up and tossed down, then still nearly led the greatest Super Bowl comeback in just his 10th career NFL start.
Rarely rattled on an impressive path to the Super Bowl, San Francisco's second-year quarterback finally showed some inexperience on football's big stage. Not to mention some guts.
After a remarkable postseason run - with those speedy legs - by the tattooed play-caller, the Baltimore Ravens exposed plenty of flaws in handing Kaepernick and Co. a 34-31 loss Sunday despite San Francisco's second-half rally.
No team has come from more than 10 points down to win a Super Bowl, and Kaepernick had a chance to make it happen less than three months after becoming San Francisco's starter.
