Forget about the Super Bowl, Puppy Bowl XII is almost upon us. This year Animal Planet collaborated with 44 animal shelters to bring not only  #TeamRuff and #TeamFluff, but also the cats for the Kitty Halftime show.

Puppy Bowl XII will air on Super Bowl Sunday, the pregame show kicks off at 2:30 pm. and the game itself will air from 3 to 5 p.m. ET/PT. “Rufferee” Dan Schachner will return with assistant, Stanley the Skunk.

New this year is footage of four puppy practice scrimmages with Puppy Bowl Virtual Reality. Check out the first practice video with four dogs on the Ruff team battling for one toy:

Fans are reminded of previous Puppy Bowl stars still up for adoption through the Puppy Bowl Hall of Fame, which was created in partnership with the Pro-Football Hall of Fame.

Join the big-haired silkie chicken cheerleaders on cheering on your favorite team on Sunday but in the mean time watch Team Ruff’s Falcon win the Puppy Bowl XI which broke the record for highest-scoring Puppy Bowl of all time. What history will be made this Sunday?

If you’re more of a kitten lover, check out Kitty Bowl III on the Hallmark Channel at 12/11 pm. Central on Sunday.
