Pewaukee native JJ Watt will host SNL in February!

Wisconsin's favorite son, JJ Watt, will host SNL on NBC the night before the Super Bowl between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs.

While the three-time Defensive Player of the Year doesn't have the star power of former hosts like LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady or Derek Jeter—and isn't a movie star like The Rock—he was pretty funny when he addressed UW-Madison's graduation last year.

Whether that's enough to translate into a funny episode of SNL remains to be seen. 

Luke Combs will be the musical guest that night.
