Nickelodeon and the National Football League have recently partnered in order to provide kids and their families behind the scenes access to the games, performances, events, and excitement that are taking place in New York and New Jersey leading up to the Super Bowl XLVIII through the Nickelodeon All Access Pass to Super Bowl XLVIII.

Super Bowl related content has already started rolling out on Nickelodeon, TeenNick, and the NickMom programming block on Nick Jr., as well as on the channel’s official websites and mobile app. Kids can also log on to www.nick.com/superbowl to pick the team they want to win Super Bowl XLVIII, with the winning team announced prior to the game on Sunday, Feb. 2.

As part of the campaign, Nickelodeon’s resident superhero Pick Boy will be reporting daily from the NFL’s Super Bowl Boulevard Engineered by GMC, and will serve as official correspondent of the network during the Super Bowl XLVIII Media Day Fueled by Gatorade.

“I’m psyched to bring all of the excitement of this year’s Super Bowl to kids across the country and be a part of giving them a chance to pick who they want to win The Big Game,” said Pick Boy. “I’ve been to five of these Super Bowls. So, bring on the FOOTBALL! and chips, maybe some of those baby carrots too. I love those.”

Nickelodeon’s full slate of original on-air programming and digital content for Super Bowl week is as follows:

It’s not just football, though, they also showed some really cool cheerleading routines and some dancing skills that might not be that useful for football, or fighting for that matter. You can check out what happened in the video below:
