The Steelers will wear their white game jerseys as the visiting team in the Super Bowl, and that color has been significant to them over the years.

They wore white in just two of their previous six Super Bowls -- their first when they beat the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IX in New Orleans and in their most recent, a victory over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XL in Detroit.

They normally wear their white jerseys on the road because the home team has first choice, but coach Bill Cowher chose white for Super Bowl XL even though they were the home team for that game. He did so because they wore their white jerseys in their three playoff victories that led to the Super Bowl, all on the road.

The Arizona Cardinals chose first and will wear their red home jerseys for the game in Tampa, Fla.
