NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Power went out at the Superdome early in the third quarter of the Super Bowl, leading to a 35-minute delay with the Baltimore Ravens leading the San Francisco 49ers 28-6 on Sunday.

The majority of the lights failed shortly after Jacoby Jones returned the opening kickoff of the second half for a touchdown.

Play finally resumed with 13:22 left in the third quarter.

During the outage, the public address announcer said the Superdome was experiencing an interruption of electrical service and encouraged fans to stay in their seats.
