Students are ready to watch the New England Patriots battle the Atlanta Falcons on Super Bowl LI.
On Feb. 5, the American Football Conference champions, the Patriots, will go head-to-head against the National Football Conference champions, the Falcons, for the title of Super Bowl LI champion.
“I cannot wait to see the Falcons win at the Super Bowl,” said William Neuneister, an individual studies major.
The Super Bowl will be held at the NRG stadium in Houston, TX and will be aired on Fox at 6:30 p.m.
This will be the Falcons second appearance at the Superbowl. In 1999, the Falcons lost against the Denver Broncos 34-19. On the other hand, this will be the Patriots’ eighth appearance.
There will be a variety of entertainment, with Luke Bryan singing the National Anthem and the Hamilton cast singing America the Beautiful. Lady Gaga is the headliner for the Super Bowl LI halftime show.
There are some people who watch the Super Bowl not for the game, but for the halftime show and commercials.
One such individual is Alyssa Enlow, an individual studies major. Unfortunately, some students cannot watch the Super Bowl or attend parties due to work schedules, including Enlow.
“I don’t watch football, but I do enjoy the Super Bowl parties, where I have had pizza and wings,” said Enlow.
Despite this, there are some students watching it for the game. Nursing student Rachel Miller is watching to cheer on the Falcons.
“I cannot wait for the Falcons to beat the Patriots this year,” said Enlow.
Neuneister said, “Depending on who will perform at the Super Bowl, I might watch, but usually I focus on the game and sometimes watch the Doritos commercials because they are very funny.”
