The 2013 Super Bowl is scheduled for Feb. 3 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans where the San Francisco 49ers will battle the Baltimore Ravens for what has been nicknamed the "Bro Bowl" because of coaches John and Jim Harbaugh.
But there is plenty to see before the game kicks off at 6:30 p.m. on CBS.
NFL Network will have coverage of the big game starting from 6 a.m. until 9 a.m. if you consider yourself an early bird.
And at 11 a.m. CBS will broadcast the "Road to the Super Bowl" followed by "New Orleans: Let the Good Times Roll," "Phil Simms All-Iron Team: Super Bowl Edition" and "The Super Bowl Today."
If you still need to get your football pregame on, NFL Network will air "A Football: Life: Ray Lewis" at 5:30 p.m before the "Super Bowl Kickoff Show" begins on CBS at 6 p.m.
And if you have been bestowed with the duty of hosting a Super Bowl party, here are some recipes for dishes that you can serve up to your fellow football fans while you tune in to pregame programming.
If you want to channel the spirit of New Orleans, try this recipe for Shrimp Po' Boy with a Horseradish Remoulade.
And to honor the culinary centerpiece of Baltimore Ravens' home state, whip up some Maryland Crab Cakes
Don't forget to represent the 49ers with this San Francisco-born fish stew---Cioppino.
And after all your guests are satiated and still haven't had enough football, turn on CBS Sports Network for the "Toyota Super Bowl Today Post Game Show" of the NFL Network for "NFL GameDay Final."
