Super Bowl schedule 2013: Ravens and 49ers battle February's first Sunday

The Super Bowl schedule is the same as it ever was, with a just-before primetime slot in the Eastern time zone. That gives folks plenty of time to feel uncomfortably stuffed with chili, snacks, and beer before the game even starts.

Game time for the Super Bowl is something that rarely changes, and it won't be any different in 2013. The Ravens and 49ers are set to do battle at 6:30 p.m. ET on Feb. 3. Of course, with all the pregame festivities the Super Bowl never starts at that time, with actual kickoff being much closer to 6:50. CBS gets their turn this year to broadcast the event, and rake in the $4 million per 30 seconds of ad time.

Ravens blog Baltimore Beatdown looks back at the AFC Championship

Atlanta fans may have trouble tuning in to watch the game, after falling just short in the NFC Championship. However, there will be some players to root for in the contest, as alums from Georgia and Georgia Tech dot the rosters.

Georgia's Dannell Ellerbe is a defensive force for the Ravens, even intercepting a pass in the AFC title game. He is joined by fellow Dawg DeAngelo Tyson. Georgia Tech's Anthony Allen backs up Ray Rice for Baltimore, and DeMarcus Dobbs represents UGA on the 49ers. Dobbs won't get to participate, as he is on injured reserve.
