Super Bowl 31 champion Brett Favre and Super Bowl 52 champion Doug Pederson tossed the coin for the game against Southern Mississippi.

Pederson represented ULM and Favre Southern Miss in the upset.

The pair have a rich history with each other.

Playing against one another in this very game during the 1987 college season.

Pederson, now coach of the Philadelphia Eagles had a rare day off, and suggested the to toss the coin.

The Super Bowl Champions did not meet until they became teammates with the Green Bay Packers in 1995.

Pederson would serve as backup quarterback two different times (1995-98 and 2001-04) and was on the Super Bowl winning team.

Favre said Pederson’s coaching job last year gave him a reason to be excited about the sport once again.

The two are great friends still and saw the coin toss as an opportunity to catch up.

Both are prominent figures in their respective alma mater.
