It’s a bittersweet time for football fans as the Super Bowl matchup is set, but this also means the football season is nearly over.

The Kansas City Chiefs, representing the American Football Conference, and the San Francisco 49ers, champions of the National Football Conference, will meet in Super Bowl LVIII (58) at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, N.V., on Sunday, Feb. 11.

As the game draws nearer, analysts and armchair quarterbacks alike will weigh in on which factors and storylines within the game.

Will Taylor Swift fuel Travis Kelce and the Chiefs to another Vince Lombardi trophy? Can the 49ers avenge their most recent Super Bowl loss which came at the hands of the Chiefs in February 2020?, however, will use 2022 data from the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service to determine the winner.

The breakdown will feature Missouri vs. California.
