Vice President Mike Pence is slated to attend the Super Bowl in Houston on Sunday, CNN reported on Friday, citing two administration officials and another source familiar with Pence’s travel.

Pence’s press secretary, Marc Lotter, declined to confirm Pence would attend the game, but told CNN the vice president’s schedule would be released later Friday.

Pence won’t be the first sitting vice president to attend a Super Bowl. Former Vice Presidents Spiro Agnew, George H.W. Bush and Al Gore also attended the Super Bowl while in office.

Former President George H. W. Bush, 92, who was recently released from a Houston hospital after being treated for pneumonia, is scheduled do the coin toss on Sunday.

CNN reports that security was already expected to be tight at the final NFL championship game, which the Department of Homeland Security has designated as a top-tier national security event.

It’s unknown which team, if any, the former Indiana governor will be rooting for in the game that matches the Atlanta Falcons against the New England Patriots.
