Super Bowl 2013 kickoff time and location for Ravens vs. 49ers

Super Bowl XLVII has been dubbed the Harbowl, as the best of the AFC and NFC are led by John and Jim Harbaugh - but they'll be on the sidelines while the game unfolds between two tough defenses.

After making it to their respective championship games last year and losing, the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers are ready to meet in the big game, as the stage for Super Bowl XLVII is set.

The matchup that gets the most publicity, of course, isn't between any two players but rather the Harbaugh brothers: John is the coach of the AFC Champion Ravens, Jim is the coach of the NFC Champion 49ers. But there's obviously more: it's Ray Lewis' final game, win or lose, and the future Hall of Famer is one of many on the Baltimore defense tasked with making sure neither half of San Francisco's strong running game - Frank Gore and speedy quarterback Colin Kaepernick - breaks loose. And while Baltimore is known for their defense, San Francisco was better this year, as they ranked No. 2 in the league in scoring defense, allowing only 17.1 points per game. That leaves Patrick Willis and others to cause trouble for the strong-armed Joe Flacco and tough running back Ray Rice.

Here's the info on the game and how to watch it:
