Super Bowl XLV Pregame Show: Schedule, Broadcasters And More

With Super Bowl XLV not set to get underway until 6:29 p.m. kickoff, there's a full day of time to kill for the major networks. And kill it they will, with a day full Super Bowl Sunday of pregame action, analysis, guest spots and so much more. Fox, the official broadcasting partner of the Super Bowl, has a full lineup to get you ready for the Super Bowl as they break down the matchups and other Super Bowl storylines.

The primary channel for the Super Bowl is Fox, so here is Fox's full slate, beginning a solid six hours before the game itself.

12 p.m., Road To The Super Bowl: Fox takes us back, running through the best moments of the 2011 season from beginning to end. Remember that time Michael Vick did that one thing? Or that time the New York Giants punted to DeSean Jackson? Relive all the moments in a one-hour highlight show. It's like a clip-special from your favorite sitcom.

1 p.m., Inside The Rings: One hour of Troy Aikman doing one-on-one interviews with the heroes of Super Bowls past. Among the list of guests: Jerome Bettis, Kurt Warner, Drew Brees and more.

2 p.m., Super Bowl XLV Pregame Show: Finally, after two hours of build-up, we get to the show before the show. Four hours of wall-to-wall action with your favorite Fox commentators. Terry Bradshawn, Curt Menefee, Howie Long, Michael Strahan, Jimmy Johnson and more are set to cover every angle and leave no stone unturned ahead of the big game.

The game gets underway at 6 p.m., with Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Chris Meyers and Pam Oliver on the call. And by gets underway, I mean the show before the show, with all the pageantry -- the National Anthem, lineups, concerts and more -- that typically precedes the big game. The game actually kicks off right around 6:30 Eastern if you're planning on skipping all the pregame festivities. 

And, of course, we've got all your big game needs covered in our 2011 Super Bowl news StoryStream. Additionally, SB Nation is on the ground in Dallas, documenting all the action in this StoryStream.
