Get ready for a hair-raisin' Super Bowl in Big D.

No barbers necessary, that's for sure, when the Steelers face the Packers.

Troy Polamalu and the Steel Curtain led Pittsburgh into the big game for the third time in six years, holding off Rex Ryan and those big-talkin' Jets 24-19 in the AFC championship game Sunday.

The black-and-gold already have won six Super Bowl rings, more than any franchise, but they'll be going against a team that can hold its own in the history department.

Green Bay was the Monster of the Midway in the NFC, winning its third straight road playoff game 21-14 over the rival Chicago Bears.

The Packers can also hold their own in the hair department, too, with the grungy locks of Clay Matthews matched against Polamalu's thick mass of curls.

The Packers opened as 2½-point favorites for the game to be played on Feb. 6 at Cowboys Stadium.
