A purr-fect competition: Kitten Bowl returns on Super Bowl Sunday

Move over, Puppy Bowl stars! These kittens are gearing up for their own football game on Super Bowl Sunday.

For the second annual Kitten Bowl competition, the furry friends will claw, scratch and battle their way to victory on the field. Model, author and host of the feline battle, Beth Stern, gave Kathie Lee and Hoda the inside scoop on Friday.

Look out for some of our favorite teammates, named after TODAY anchors: Matt Meow-er, Savannah "Scratching Post" Guthrie, Catalie Morales, Al-ley Cat Roker, Carson Tail-y, Tabby Hall and Whiskers Geist.


And watch the intense (and intensely adorable) promo video to hear them "roar" in anticipation. 

"Kitten Bowl II" airs Sunday, Feb. 1, at 12 p.m. on the Hallmark Channel.
