On average, 112 million people watch the famous Superbowl every year. Families and friends gather around their TVs to watch one of America's most prolific sports. Many of them have traditions that aid in their entertainment for the night. So we here at NGU asked a few of our staff members what traditions they hold during the big game.

Professor Andrew Stephens, Communication department: We always have a big potluck meal and party inviting a few of our family friends. We really enjoy spending the quality time together regardless of who is playing in the Superbowl.
