Breakfast in America on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 6, takes on a whole new meaning as FOX Sports gets the nation's most celebrated unofficial holiday off to its earliest start ever, 10:00 AM ET/7:00 AM PT, which doesn't include the three shows over two-and-a-half hours on Super Bowl Saturday, either. There's something for almost everyone throughout weekend In addition to thorough breakdowns of each teams offense, defense and special teams, player/coach features and profiles, interesting tidbits and late breaking reports, the show will occasionally dash off to the famed TPC at Sawgrass golf course, where MLB on FOX analyst Tim McCarver and NASCAR on FOX analyst Darrell Waltrip host a Hole-in-One contest from the Stadium Course's celebrated island par-3 17th hole. The contest features three four-member teams, representing the NFL, MLB and NASCAR. In addition to personalities from each sport, each team will be captained by a current PGA member, and shoots to win cash for various charities.

  • The NASCAR team features drivers Dale Jarrett, Elliott Sadler and Rusty Wallace.
  • The team from MLB team boasts Atlanta Braves closer John Smoltz and Arizona Diamondbacks shortstop Royce Clayton thus far, while the NFL team is anchored by Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher.
  • The PGA pros and remaining players will be announced at a later date. Take one backstage pass, add some glory day recollections, mix in the world's best extreme sports athletes, the country's most avant-garde sports show, a dash of golf and a heap of FOX NFL SUNDAY into a super-sized bowl, mix well, and you have FOX Sports' recipe for the most eclectic Super Bowl pre-game show ever. And it all kicks off at about the time folks on the East Coast are looking on the doorstep for the Sunday paper and West Coast fans are still in dreamland.
