It's the big day, February 3! Super Bowl 47 starts soon. All across Shreveport-Bossier, the crowds are gathering, the beer is flowing and the dip is ready. But maybe in all that pre-game haste, you forgot exactly what time the big game starts.

Here's a run-down of what time Super Bowl 47 starts, who the halftime show features and more.

Super Bowl 47, hosted at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, La., kicks off at 6:30 p.m. EST on CBS. So get those butts on sofas -- or bar stools -- before then. The Baltimore Ravens will square off against the San Francisco 49ers.

If you're stuck at work or otherwise without access to a TV, you can listen to Super Bowl 47 on 1130 The Tiger's Listen Live player or with our free smartphone mobile app, radioPup.

Before kickoff, Alicia Keys will sing the National Anthem, while students from Newtown, Connecticut's Sandy Hook Elementary will perform what will no doubt be a stirring rendition of "America the Beautiful" with Jennifer Hudson.

The halftime show will feature Beyonce -- hopefully in a non-lip-syncing capacity. Rumor has it that Jay-Z and Destiny's Child may also get involved.

The one thing we can't tell you (yet, anyway) is who won. But if you're the type who believes animals have the ability to predict a winner, here's a video of a dog predicting the winning team.
