Former Georgia Tech kicker Harrison Butker won his third Super Bowl title Sunday as part of the Kansas City Chiefs’ 25-22 overtime win over San Francisco at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

Butker made four field goals, including a Super Bowl record 57-yarder, and an extra point in the Super Bowl victory. Butker now has scored 37 points in three Super Bowls, the most in NFL history by a kicker and the second-most all-time points to Jerry Rice’s 48.

After a 28-yarder in the second quarter gave Kansas City its first points, Butker booted the 57-yarder in the third quarter. He also made kicks from 24 and 29 yards, the latter tying the game at 19 to force overtime.

Butker, a Westminster graduate who kicked for Tech from 2013-16, also now holds the record for Super Bowl field goals made in a career with nine.

Pair of Former Bulldogs part of Chiefs win, too

Former Georgia standout Mecole Hardman hauled in a 3-yard touchdown in overtime to give Kansas City the game-winning score Sunday. Hardman finished with three catches for 57 yards and joined another former Bulldog, Malik Herring, on the winning squad. Herring finished with a tackle in the Chiefs’ victory.

Former Bulldogs receiver Chris Conley had one catch for 18 yards, two special teams tackles and downed a punt on the 1-yard line for the 49ers. Tight end Charlie Woerner (one special teams tackle) and defensive lineman Robert Beal suited up for San Francisco.

In addition, running back Jerick McKinnon, from Sprayberry High and Georgia Southern, had two catches for 15 yards for the Chiefs.
