NEW YORK (AP) — If the NFL’s use of Roman numerals for the Super Bowl has been confusing over the years, you’re going to get a break in 2016. The 50th edition of the Super Bowl will be played in Santa Clara, Calif., and the league says it will be called “Super Bowl 50”, not “Super Bowl L.”

In 2017, the league will revert to Roman numerals, referring to the 51st edition as “Super Bowl LI.” The NFL first started using Roman numerals for the fifth Super Bowl in 1971.
