It doesn't get any bigger than this!
The National Football League (NFL) will stage its biggest game of the year, Super Bowl XLVII, later on this evening (Sun., Feb. 3, 2013) as the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens collide with the Lombardi Trophy at stake.
Kickoff is slated for 6:30 p.m. ET at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
There are a number of ways to watch the big game, the easiest of which is to simply turn on CBS, the network whose year has come up in the rotation. The Super Bowl will kick off at 6:30 p.m., as noted, but the network has an entire day of programming planned leading up to it, including:
1 p.m.: Phil Simms All-Iron Team
2 p.m.: Super Bowl Today
5 p.m.: Super Bowl Kickoff Show
5:30 p.m.: Super Bowl XLVII
