2010 Miss America Pageant: Super Bowl States

It will be Peyton Manning and his Indianapolis Colts vs. Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints in Super Bowl XLIV on Feb. 7, and one of the 53 contestants will be at The Big Game in Florida as the 2010 Miss America fulfilling her first official duties for the new reigning year.

After rehearsals yesterday for this Saturday’s Miss America Pageant at Planet Hollywood hosted by Mario Lopez, Miss Indiana Nicole Pollard and Miss Louisiana Katherine Putnam posed with an official Super Bowl XLIV football for our contributing photographer Tom Donoghue.

Two facts to ponder: The New Orleans Saints are heading to the Super Bowl for the first time, and Miss Nevada has never won Miss America. Is 2010 the year for these first-timers?
