INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Now that the NFL season has been saved, Super Bowl organizers can sack their backup plans.
Indianapolis host committee spokeswoman Dianna Boyce said they expect NFL officials to give them the official word soon that they can cancel plans for a Feb. 12 Super Bowl. The game is scheduled for Feb. 5.
The NFL asked Indy to keep both weekends open when the city made its bid to host the league's title game. As the 4 ½-month lockout dragged on, many wondered if the game would have to be pushed back a week.
