SEATTLE (AP) - If your Super Bowl plans on Sunday include travel on Washington state ferries, you can step aboard the “M/V Russell Wilson” or possibly the “M/V Marshawn Lynch.”

Gov. Jay Inslee has directed that the ferries be temporarily renamed in honor of the Seattle Seahawks.

Ferry system director Lynne Griffith says fans appreciated last year’s “symbolic renaming of the fleet.” And she notes the team went on to win that big game.

The state Transportation Department has 24 vessels in its fleet. On Sunday, each will be renamed for a Seahawks team member.
