Super Bowl to scrap Roman numerals for a year

By The Associated Press

NEW YORK - The Super Bowl will scrap the Roman numerals for a year.

The 50th edition of the game will be played in February 2016 in Santa Clara, California. The NFL said Wednesday it will be called "Super Bowl 50" instead of "Super Bowl L."

In 2017, the league will revert to Roman numerals, referring to the 51st edition as "Super Bowl LI."

The NFL first started using Roman numerals for the fifth Super Bowl in 1971.
