Super Bowl Saturday??

MetLife Super Bowl 48 must go on and next year’s big game is scheduled for Sunday, February 2, 2014 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

The NFL unveiled its back up plan just in case bad weather takes control.

If snow is in the forecast, the committee would move it up to Saturday or delay it to Monday. They are planning for this situation because MetLife Stadium doesn’t have a retractable roof or dome.

Despite several reports, the NFL confirmed Tuesday that there will be a half-time show during next year’s Super Bowl at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford.
