Vice President Mike Pence to attend Super Bowl LI

Vice President Mike Pence is set to attend Super Bowl LI in Houston, Texas on Sunday, according to CNN.

While it is unclear who he will be rooting for, the former Indiana governor is sure to have prime seats at Sunday night's highly anticipated game between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots.

Pence won't be the first sitting vice president to attend the NFL championship game -- former Vice Presidents Spiro Agnew, George H.W. Bush and Al Gore also attended a Super Bowl while in office.

The already high-level security event has been designated as a top-tier national security event by the Department of Homeland Security.

The Houston Police Department will have all of their officers on duty, and the FBI confirmed earlier this week that there will be a large presence of both uniformed and plainclothes officers at the Super Bowl.

Former President George H. W. Bush and his wife Barbara will also be in attendance for the big game. The pair is slated to participate in the pregame coin toss.
