The 47th annual NFL Super Bowl is scheduled to take place tomorrow afternoon, Sunday, February 3rd in New Orleans, Louisiana. Kickoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. CST/6:30 p.m. EST and will be aired live on the CBS network from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. You can watch the Super Bowl for free over the internet at CBSSports.com.
Singing a very unique version of the national anthem will be Alicia Keys. And six-time Grammy-Award winner Beyonce Knowles will perform during the Pepsi Super Bowl Half-time Show.
CBS analyst Jim Nantz will call the game along with former Super Bowl MVP and New York Giant Phil Simms. As sideline reporters will be former NFL players Steve Tasker and Solomon Wilcots.
The game matches up the Baltimore Ravens against the San Francisco 49ers for the NFL championship. The winner will be awarded the Lombardi Trophy. The game is being nicknamed the “Harbaugh Bowl” or “HarBowl” because, for the first time in Super Bowl history, the head coaches on the opposing teams are brothers. John Harbaugh is the head coach for the Ravens. His younger brother, Jim Harbaugh, is the head coach for the 49ers.
Raven’s linebacker Ray Lewis will be playing the final game of his 17 year career in this Super Bowl. The controversial player has become an ambassador for the league after an incident in 2000 resulted in him being indicted on murder and aggravated-assault charges. Lewis eventually pled guilty to an obstruction of justice charge in exchange for testimony against two other defendants. Much will be made of Lewis’ career highlights which include 13 Pro Bowl selections, two NFL Defensive Player of the Year Awards and the Super Bowl MVP award in 2000.
Airing directly after the game on CBS will be a special episode of Elementary.
