PEORIA, Ill. -- A pair of Bradley University students are headed to Indianapolis for the Super Bowl.

Sports Communications majors Josh Koebert and Zach Keesee have been selected to work as interns for NBC Sports.

Their duties will include writing press releases and helping with logistics for events surrounding the game.

Koebert will even get to work with NBC sportscaster Bob Costas.

"There's a town hall meeting that Bob Costas is hosting on Thursday that I'll be heavily involved with," said Josh, a Bradley senior from Milwaukee. "I'll also help coordinate media members on the phone and getting sportswriters where they need to be for events during the week and writing and editing press releases for NBC throughout the entire week."

NBC Sports has also selected 10 Bradley students for internships at the upcoming summer Olympics.
