NFL OWNERS VOTE: The 2015 Super Bowl is awarded to …

HOUSTON — NFL owners have awarded the 2015 Super Bowl to the Phoenix area.

It will be the third time the area has hosted the game, which will be played in Glendale, Ariz. The Super Bowl also was held at University of Phoenix Stadium in 2008, when the Giants beat the Patriots 17-14. Tempe, Ariz., hosted the game in 1996, with Dallas defeating Pittsburgh 27-17.

The Arizona committee screamed in delight when the announcement was made Tuesday.

Phoenix beat the Tampa area in the bidding on the second ballot. Tampa has hosted the game in 1984, 1991, 2001 and 2009.

Next year’s game is in Indianapolis, followed by New Orleans in 2013 and the New York/New Jersey area in 2014.

The 2015 game is the 49th Super Bowl.
