Super Bowl Power Outage 2013 - Game Delayed by Black Out!

Super Bowl Power Outage 2013 - Game Delayed by Black Out!

The game was delayed at the 2013 Super Bowl by a stadium power outage at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday (February 3) in New Orleans, La.

With 13:22 left on the clock in the third quarter, half of the lights in the stadium abruptly went out and the game literally had to stop. Just minutes before the blackout happened, the Baltimore Ravens had moved their lead over the San Francisco 49ers to 28-6 with a 109-yard return!

UPDATE: CBS Sports released a statement about the situation, saying: “Immediately after the power failure in the Superdome, we lost numerous cameras and some audio powered by sources in the Superdome. We utilized CBS’s back-up power and at no time did we leave the air. During the interruption, CBS Sports’ Steve Tasker, Solomon Wilcots and our studio team reported on the situation as a breaking news story, providing updates and reports while full power was being restored to the dome including our sets and broadcast booth. All commercial commitments during the broadcast are being honored.”
