If it's anything like last year's game, Super Bowl LII won't disappoint fans eager for an exciting match-up.

The Philadelphia Eagles will square off against defending Super Bowl champions, the New England Patriots, at the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 4 at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. The rematch comes 14 years after the teams battled on football's biggest stage in 2004, when the Patriots won 24-21.

The Super Bowl, which will mark the eighth appearance for New England in the last 16 years, will kick off at 6:30 p.m. E.T., with the program beginning at 6:00 p.m. NBC's pregame coverage begins at 1:00 p.m. (E.T.). Justin Timberlake will perform during the Super Bowl half-time show this year, and Pink will sing the National Anthem.
