It's already being called the Harbowl: a Super Bowl clash between San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh. The Harbaughs are the first pair of brothers to work as head coaches in the NFL, and they'll square off for Super Bowl 47 on Feb. 3.
This year, Missouri has a few connections to the big game. Locally, St. Louis native Joe Larrew has been selected as an official for the Super Bowl, Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Veterans from the University of Missouri football program also are represented on each team: 49ers defensive ends Aldon Smith and Justin Smith and Ravens coach Ted Monachino all played at Mizzou, and Ravens offensive line coach Andy Moeller previously coached there. Jim Leavitt, a 49ers coach, also attended Mizzou in the '70s.
Kickoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on CBS.
