NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Super Bowl Sunday is finally here. After two weeks of hoopla since the conference championship games, the Ravens and 49ers will play for the NFL title later today in New Orleans (6:30 p.m. Eastern).
We know one thing for certain -- a Harbaugh will be holding the Lombardi Trophy in the Superdome after the game. Baltimore is coached by John Harbaugh and younger brother Jim coaches San Francisco.
The betting-favorite 49ers are 5-0 in previous Super Bowl appearances but haven't played in the big game in 18 years.
The Ravens only other trip to the Super Bowl was in 2001 and they battered the New York Giants 34-7.
Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis was a key member of that championship team and he will be playing the final game of his career today. The 17-year veteran announced before the playoffs started that he was retiring at the end of the season.
