What interrupted play in Super Bowl XLVII for 34 minutes?
Super Bowl XLVII was played on February 3, 2013 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. The Balimore Ravens were leading the San Francisco 49ers 28-6 when a power outage plunged the Superdome into darkness with 13:22 left in the third quarter. CBS announcers Jim Nantz and Phil Simms went silent, escalators stopped working, credit-card machines shut down, and the game was halted for 34 minutes. In the end, the lights came back on, and the Ravens defeated the 49ers by the score of 34–31. Due to the power outage, the game has also become known as the "Blackout Bowl".
