Vice President Mike Pence is traveling to Houston to see Super Bowl LI to see the Patriots-Falcons match-up on Sunday, a source familiar with his schedule says.

Former President George H.W. Bush, who spent two weeks in the hospital, will also be at the Super Bowl -- he’ll be doing the coin toss at NRG Stadium.

Bush also attended the Super Bowl in 2005, with fellow former President Bill Clinton. They appeared on Fox network’s pre-game show to raise money for tsunami victims. 

Pence won’t be the only sitting vice president to have attended a Super Bowl game. Vice Presidents Al Gore, George H.W. Bush and Spiro Agnew also went to Super Bowl games when they were in office. 

Pence will also be appearing on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday.
