EAST RUTHERFORD - After yesterday's unprecedented blackout during Super Bowl XLVII, officials at MetLife Stadium aren't taking any chances for next year's game.

NFL officials say they're doing everything possible to prevent another power outage like the one that delayed yesterday's game in New Orleans for 34 minutes.

Super Bowl XLVIII is set to be the first outdoor, cold-weather Super Bowl when it comes to MetLife Stadium in February of 2014.

NJBiz.com reports that MetLife Stadium officials are already working with PSEG to ensure that there isn't another repeat next year.

Officials are still working to determine what caused yesterday's blackout.
