January 9, 1977

Super Bowl XI would go on to be remembered as one of the greater offensive Super Bowls in the early years, as the Oakland Raiders racked up an NFL-record 288 yards of offense in the first half of the game. This would help the Raiders get out to an early lead, eventually leading them to a 32-14 victory over the Vikings. Over 103,000 fans were in attendance for Super Bowl XI, making this one of the most heavily attended Super Bowls to date.

While Raiders cornerback Willie Brown had a stellar showing, recording a 75-yard interception return for a touchdown, it was wide receiver Fred Biletnikoff that was awarded the Super Bowl XI MVP trophy, with four catches for 79 yards in the big game.

By Super Bowl XI, the halftime show had transitioned to becoming more of a performance instead of it being marching bands. Disney presented the “It’s A Small World” production with the Los Angeles Unified All-City Band for halftime of this Super Bowl. Another interesting fact about Super Bowl XI remains that the national anthem was not sung, but instead, singer Vikki Carr performed “America the Beautiful” before kickoff.

The Cowboys captured Super Bowl XII with a final score of 27-10. This game was played on January 15, 1978 with an attendance of 75,583 people, in New Orleans, Louisiana at the Louisiana Super Dome.

The Cowboys had quite the game and their defense conquered most of Super Bowl XII. Dallas had such a good defense that they forced eight turnovers and only allowed eight completed passes from the Broncos. Butch Johnson could be considered the star of Super Bowl XII, when he dove into the end zone, making a catch that resulted in a 45 yard touchdown reception. Two other stars of the game included Randy White defensive tackle and defensive end Harvey Martin, who would be Super Bowl co-MVPs. This was the first and only time in Super Bowl history that two players won MVP honors.

The cost of a 30 second commercial really went up in 1978 to a total cost of $162,000. Pat Summerall was yet again an announcer for the Super Bowl, along with Tom Brookshier. The game aired on the CBS network and the halftime show included entertainment like Pete Fountain and Al Hirt.
