You can catch Super Bowl XLVII this year on Feb. 3 at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS, where the San Francisco 49ers will take on the Baltimore Ravens.

There will be an astounding seven hours of pregame coverage, as noted by FangsBites.com.

Coverage on the network will begin at 11 a.m. ET, featuring NFL Films' Road to the Super Bowl, which highlights the sights and sounds of the 2012 season.

From noon to 1 p.m. ET, fans will get a glimpse of the city of New Orleans through local musician Wynton Marsalis.

After that segment, CBS Sports' broadcast team, Phil Simms and Jim Nantz, will delve into the history of the NFL, from the top moments in Super Bowl history to profiles of coaches and players.

From 2 p.m.-6 p.m. ET, James Brown, Dan Marino, Boomer Esiason, Shannon Sharpe, Bill Cowher and Greg Gumbel will go around the roundtable in the pregame show.

The coin flip and the national anthem will be televised for the remaining half hour before the game.

As for the game, many people are labeling this the "Harbaugh Bowl," given that brothers Jim (49ers) and John (Ravens) Harbaugh will be coaching against each other. While Jim has received a lot of notoriety for his fiery demeanor on the sidelines, John matches him in intensity.

The defenses of each team reflect the temperament of the Harbaugh brothers. These defensive units are explosive, hard-hitting and tenacious. The 49ers may have the better defense overall (17.1 points per game allowed in the regular season), but the Ravens are coming off a 28-13 victory over Tom Brady and the explosive New England Patriots.

Both teams also have quarterbacks playing at a high level. San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick has become a phenom in his second season in the NFL, torching defenses with his arm and his legs.

Joe Flacco has averaged an impressive 9.2 yards per pass attempt while tossing eight touchdowns to zero interceptions in Baltimore's three playoff games this season. Two of those games were on the road.

Each team's running game is also something to watch for. Baltimore sports three-time Pro Bowler Ray Rice, while San Francisco boasts four-time Pro Bowler Frank Gore.

Make no mistake about it, it figures to be an electric affair in Super Bowl XLVII. Don't miss a moment of the action.
