The Ravens and 49ers are set to meet in Super Bowl XLVII in what should cap an active week in New Orleans.
After they both won conference championship games on the road, the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens will travel one final time this season as they head to New Orleans to play in Super Bowl XLVII.

Both the Ravens and 49ers opened the season as Super Bowl contenders, but few thought they would reach the big game in the fashion they did. The Ravens lost five of their final six regular-season games, only to turn around and win three straight playoff games, including two on the road. The 49ers never had the downswing Baltimore did, but not many would have predicted it would be Colin Kaepernick leading San Francisco into New Orleans and not Alex Smith.
A Super Bowl in New Orleans is nothing new, as this will be the 10th the city has hosted. It will, however, be the first New Orleans Super Bowl since 2001. If you aren't planning on being in New Orleans to watch the game, CBS will be televising Super Bowl XLVII. The kickoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. CT.
Where: Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, La.
When: Sunday, Feb. 3, 5:30 p.m. CT
