Houston Looks Like a Lock for Another Super Bowl

Houston Looks Like a Lock for Another Super Bowl

You don't need a "Magic 8 Ball" to believe all signs point to 'yes' in today's NFL owners vote for the site of the 2017 Super Bowl. The Houston group is optimistic.                                                   

Ric Campo is chairman of Houston's Super Bowl bid committee.

"We expect to hear somewhere in the 3 to 3:30 range."

Campo says the 2004 Super Bowl at Reliant was a big success and owners enjoyed that trip to the Bayou City.

"The climate issues; you get into the amenities that the city has; the experience of what we're calling 'Super Bowl El Centro.'"

Campo says even Jerry Jones' "Death Star" in Arlington will be outdone by Reliant Stadium.

"Reliant is definitely a world class facility. We're installing a new video board at Reliant. It'll be the largest video screen in the world."

Houston is competing with San Francisco and Miami for Super Bowls 49 and 50 and many believe Miami will be the odd man out.
