Tampa Bay slight underdog to Glendale, Ariz. in bid to host 2015 Super Bowl



Tampa Bay is considered a "slight underdog" to Glendale, Ariz. to host the Super Bowl in 2015.

NFL owners will vote today in Houston and many will cast their ballot based on the fact that it's "Arizona's turn." Raymond James Stadium was the site of Super Bowl XLIII. The University of Phoenix Stadium hosted Super Bowl XLII a year earlier.

Working in Tampa Bay's favor is the fact that owners may prefer a warmer night temperature, especially coming off Super Bowls in Dallas, Indianapolis and New Jersey.

Tampa Bay also narrowly missed out on the 2014 Super Bowl, which was awarded to the New York area and will be played in New Jersey.
