Our panelists predict what will be the big surprise out of the 2016 Super Bowl.


Now panel, what will be the big surprise at the big game? Alonzo Bodden.

ALONZO BODDEN: The shocking thing - just like the Oscars, there'll be no black winners.


SAGAL: Helen Hong.

HELEN HONG: Marco Rubio will give a Katy Perry-style halftime performance, complete with fireworks, sequined outfits and Rand Paul and Rick Santorum dancing backup in shark costumes.


SAGAL: That would actually be awesome.

BILL KURTIS: That would be good.

SAGAL: Roy Blount, Jr.

ROY BLOUNT, JR.: A wide receiver makes a leaping, one-finger catch. And there it is. There's nowhere else to go from there.


KURTIS: And if any of those things happen, panel, we'll tell you about it on WAIT WAIT ...DON'T TELL ME.

SAGAL: Thank you. Bill Kurtis. Thanks also to Alonzo Bodden, Helen Hong, Roy Blount, Jr. Thanks to all of you for listening. I am Peter Sagal. We'll see you next week.


SAGAL: This is NPR.
