Super Bowl field gets plenty of TLC

The custom-ordered, 92,000-square-foot, 19 million-pound surface at University of Phoenix Stadium is the only retractable playing surface in the U.S. This week, it was moved out so it could be prepared for the Super Bowl after the stadium hosted the Pro Bowl last Sunday.
