NBC will be carrying the Super Bowl this year, which means Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth during the actual game and Bob Costas, Dan Patrick, Tony Dungy and a host of others for the pregame. And what a pregame it will be. With kickoff scheduled for 6:30 Eastern, the pregame coverage will start at noon with Costas reporting live from downtown Indianapolis. Are you ready for 6 and a half hours of pregame?
