TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Nick Foles, UA Football Class of 2011, accounted for four touchdowns in helping the Eagles win Super Bowl 52, 41-33 over the New England Patriots.

He also caught a one-yard touchdown pass on a trick play right before the end of the first half.

Rob Gronkowski (UA '09) after a slow start finished with nine catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns.

Patriots linebacker Marquis Flowers (UA '13) had one tackle for loss in the game, snuffing out a Foles' third down screen pass attempt in the fourth quarter.

Foles is the first UA Football quarterback to lead an NFL team to a Super Bowl and now a title.

He becomes the 11th Arizona Wildcat to earn a Super Bowl ring.
