On Sunday New Orleans will play host to the 47th Super Bowl.
More than 79,000 fans are expected to pack the stadium, but that's just the beginning. Here’s a look at the Super Bowl by the numbers.
The Big Game:
1. One is how often the opposing head coaches in a Super Bowl were brothers.
2. The cost of a 30-second Super Bowl spot in 2012 was $3.5 million. In 1970, the same 30 seconds ran for $42,000.
3. An estimated 111.3 million people watched last year’s Super Bowl. It was the most watched TV show in US history.
4. $800 is the lowest face value of a ticket, but don't bother trying to get one. These so-called cheap seats are gone.
5. If you want to buy a ticket to the big game from an online broker, the current average ticket price is over $3,000, For that money, you can buy two 50-inch HDTV's at Costco with money to spare for a hotdog and a coke.
Super Bowl Food:
While players in the Super Bowl are burning thousands of calories, fans are the champs at absorbing them. Here are the numbers for 2012’s Super Bowl:
6. Fans shelled out $125 million for chicken wings on Super Sunday.
7. They also wolfed down 71 million pounds of guacamole.
8. Plus, they snapped up 49.2 million cases of beer.
9. There's a 35 percent rise in pizza deliveries on Super Sunday.

11. $88,000 is how much the winning players get.
12. The losers get $46,000, which is still not a bad payday.
That’s the Super Bowl by the numbers.
