Courtney Upshaw wins Super Bowl year after BCS title game victory

Ravens rookie outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw won his second consecutive championship in football games played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

After winning the BCS national title a year ago at Alabama with a win over LSU, the second-round draft pick is an NFL champion after contributing a forced fumble against the San Francisco 49ers.

The Ravens defeated the 49ers, 34-31, Sunday night in Super Bowl XLVII.

Is Upshaw a good-luck charm?

"I've been told that, man," Upshaw said. "Honestly, I'm part of the Baltimore Ravens now. I put those championships behind me. Now, it's time to win another Super Bowl.  I want another Super Bowl because it feels great."
