Super Bowl XLVII kicks off Sunday night at 5:30 p.m. CT from New Orleans, and the world will be watching as the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens battle it out to determine football's ultimate champion.

On one side, you have the 49ers, led by upstart quarterback Colin Kaepernick. He took over starting duties back in November and has thrown for 1,814 yards this season to go along with ten touchdowns. His favorite target is Michael Crabtree. The wide receiver has 85 receptions for 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns.

The 49ers reached the Super Bowl by first defeating Green Bay at home, 45-31, then going to Atlanta to beat the Falcons, 28-24.

The Ravens, meanwhile, had to withstand three playoff games to reach Sunday night. They took care of the Colts rather easily in the Wild Card round, 24-9, before surviving a double-overtime thriller against the Broncos, 38-35. After that, Baltimore went to Foxboro and disposed of the Patriots, 28-13.

Baltimore is paced by Joe Flacco under center and Ray Rice at running back. Flacco threw for 22 touchdowns this season and Rice rushed for nine more.

Game time: 5:30 p.m. CT
