NFL | Electrical device caused SB XLVII blackout

The company that supplied electricity to Super Bowl XLVII said the blackout that halted the game for 34 minutes was caused by a device it installed specially to prevent a power failure. However, the utility stopped short of taking all the blame and said it was looking into whether the electrical relay at fault had a design flaw or a manufacturing defect. Officials said the relay functioned with no problems during the Sugar Bowl and other earlier events; however, it has been removed and will be replaced.
