Super Bowl 45 between the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers doesn't actually kick off until about 5:30 p.m. CST. So what are you going to watch all afternoon before the big game actually begins? Here are a few selections.â†µâ†µ
11 a.m., Big Ten Network: College basketball, Michigan at Penn State.â†µâ†µ
11:30 a.m., NBC-5: NHL, Penguins at Capitals. The combatants from this year's Winter Classic meet again, this time indoors.â†µâ†µ
12 noon, CBS-2: College basketball, Michigan State at No. 18 Wisconsin.â†µâ†µ
1 p.m., ESPN: College basketball, No. 1 Ohio State at No. 20 Minnesota. Maybe this game will be the one where the last unbeaten -- the Buckeyes -- finally go down to defeat.â†µâ†µ
1 p.m., Fox-32: Super Bowl XLV Pregame Show. If you actually watch this show, please don't admit it to anyone.â†µâ†µ
1:30 p.m., ABC-7: NBA, Magic at Celtics. Here's a much better Super Bowl pregame sports choice.â†µâ†µ
5 p.m., Fox-32: NFL, Super Bowl XLV, Packers vs. Steelers at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. You'll still have about 30 minutes of pregame hoopla to get through before the game -- and the commercials -- begin.
