Malcom vs. Malcolm: Longhorns in the Super Bowl

Malcom Brown Patriots defense

AUSTIN (KXAN) —  Two former Longhorns teammates will see each other in Atlanta when the Patriots and Rams play for Super Bowl LIII.

It’s Malcom Brown vs. Malcolm Brown in Super Bowl LIII. An epic battle for who spells their name correctly once and for all (kidding).

One “l” and about 100 pounds make up some of the differences between the Patriots defensive tackle, Malcom Brown, and Rams running back, Malcolm Brown.

Both Browns completed stellar Texas high school football careers before joining the Longhorns where they spent three years as Texas teammates (2012-14).

Rams running back Malcolm Brown won’t be fully part of the festivities out for the season with a clavicle injury, but is part of the roster and would earn a Super Bowl ring for his season contributions.

The Patriots defensive tackle, Malcom Brown, won a world championship with New England in 2017 becoming the 24th Texas Longhorn to win a Super Bowl.

Brown, the Rams running back, can become the 27th Longhorn to win it all. Jordan Hicks and Marcus Johnson won titles with the Eagles last year.

Although, a lot of people already think the former Cibolo Steele running back is part of the Super Bowl club.

The classic—Malcom vs Malcolm mix-up. The Rams RB fielded several congratulatory texts, but was a good sport about it.

This year, Brown has a chance at the real thing. Either way, another Texas Longhorn is earning a Super Bowl championship.
