Former Oklahoma State DE Antonio Smith, Broncos win Super Bowl 50

The Cowboy is a champion.

Former Oklahoma State defensive end Antonio Smith lifted the Lombardi Trophy along with his teammates after the Denver Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-10 in Super Bowl 50 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.

Smith, 34, recorded three tackles and one sack this postseason for Denver. The John Marshall product out of Oklahoma City recorded nine tackles and 2.5 sacks in 16 regular-season games.

The Broncos -- led by Peyton Manning who, at 39, is the oldest starting quarterback in Super Bowl history -- scored first on a first-quarter field goal and never relinquished the lead in a game that many speculate will be Manning's last in the NFL.

It's Denver's third Super Bowl victory in eight tries. The Broncos previously won back-to-back championships in 1997 and 1998 with current executive vice president and general manager John Elway at quarterback.

Carolina is now 0 for 2 in Super Bowls, dropping Super Bowl XXXVIII (2004) to the Patriots, 32-29.
