Power went out at the Superdome early in the third quarter of the Super Bowl on Sunday with the Baltimore Ravens leading the San Francisco 49ers 28-6. Stadium officials told CBS Sports that the power has begun to come back on.
The majority of lights failed shortly after Jacoby Jones returned the opening kickoff of the second half for a touchdown. There was 13:22 left in the quarter.
 
The teams remained on the field.
 
The delay has lasted more than 25 minutes, CBS Sports' James Brown reported.
 
CBS Sports reporter Solomon Wilcots said that players were stretching and trying to stay loose during the delay.
