The Super Dome loses power during second half of Super Bowl XLVII.

The Ravens had built a 28-6 lead early in the third quarter before a partial power outage in the Superdome suspended play for 34 minutes earning Super Bowl XLVII the nickname of the Blackout Bowl. After play resumed, San Francisco scored 17 unanswered third-quarter points to cut the Ravens' lead to 28-23, and continued to chip away in the fourth quarter.

Super Bowl 47 was interrupted for 34 minutes due to a 22-minute partial power outage. Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis later stated in an interview that he believed the blackout was part of a conspiracy, saying "You're a zillion dollar company and your lights go out? No. No way." 49ers CEO Jed York responded to the claim on Twitter in jest, tweeting "There is no conspiracy. I pulled the plug."
