RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

It's that time of year again, where fans huddle up, cover themselves in their team colors, and get ready for the greatest game of all time... that's right, get ready for Puppy Bowl X!

The Puppy Bowl will air on Animal Planet on Super Bowl Sunday, February 2, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and repeating all day. Viewers will be able to vote for their favorite Running Barks and Golden Receivers to see which puppy will take home the coveted title of MVP (Most Valuable Puppy).

Animal Planet is going all out this year to commemorate the tenth season of Puppy Bowl. The Xtraordinary KITTY half-time show will feature special guest and internet sensation Keyboard Cat while kitty all stars perform an epic domino topple.

The Puppy Bowl will repeat five times over the course of the day, with new content airing with each show, including interactive voting and surprise endings - viewers can even submit their own photos of their pets via Instagram using #puppybowl for a chance to be on TV!

For those serious Puppy Bowl competitors out there, Animal Planet will now offer its first-ever fantasy draft, where fans can view profiles of 11 all-star players and create their team of fierce and fuzzy competitors in advance of the big game. Sign-up will be available later this month.

To sign up for the fantasy draft, watch videos of previous Puppy Bowls, or learn more about this year's big game, visit AnimalPlanet.com/PuppyBowl.

Let the tailgating begin!
