The Baltimore Ravens won their second Super Bowl in twelve years by holding off the favored San Francisco 49ers 34-31 in Super Bowl XLVII at the New Orleans Superdome. Joe Flacco tossed three touchdown passes in the first half as the Ravens opened a 21-6 halftime edge, including a 56-yarder to Jacoby Jones just before halftime. Jones opened the second half with an electrifying 108-yard touchdown record, the longest kickoff return in Super Bowl history. Then a power outage delayed play for 35 minutes, which seemed to breathe life into the Niners. Trailing 28-6 when the power went out, San Francisco came to life with 17 points over a 4:14 stretch of the third quarter to make it 28-23. After Baltimore took a 31-23 lead, the Niners scored a touchdown to cut it to 31-29. The Ravens added a late field goal and then in the final seconds took an intentional safety to make the final margin 34-31. Flacco was named the Super Bowl MVP. He went 22 of 33 for 287 yards and the three scores. Baltimore also won the Super Bowl in 2001.

Mixon once was committed to Arizona State, before switching to Missouri on Dec. 8. Of the 25 pledges now in the Husker class, six are defensive linemen. The 6’3, 265-pound Mixon joins Ernest Suttles of Florida, A.J. Natter of Wisconsin, and junior-college prospect Randy Gregory of Arizona Western Community College listed as defensive ends in this class. Mixon gives Nebraska its third commitment since Wednesday, with athlete Drake Martinez and offensive lineman Chongo Kondolo also committing last week.
