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.
