SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — When the Super Bowl kicks off in February at University of Phoenix Stadium, there's one thing the NFL won't have to worry about: an extended blackout.

Ephesus Lighting of Syracuse, New York, has just completed installation of LED lighting at the venue, site of the 2015 Super Bowl. The first game played under the new lights was Sunday, when the Cardinals hosted the San Francisco 49ers.

Ephesus chief executive officer Amy Casper says it's the first NFL venue to illuminate a playing surface exclusively with LED lighting.

Peter Sullivan, regional vice president and general manager of the University of Phoenix Stadium, says he's already fielded calls from another NFL team and a Major League Baseball franchise.
