On February 7th, we once again bear witness to the most important sporting event of the year: the Puppy Bowl. While the Super Bowl will air over on CBS, Animal Planet will host two teams of rascally pups as they fight for victory (hint: everybody wins).

While the pups are certainly the biggest part of the event, they won’t be the only animals on our screens. This year’s showdown also features a halftime show of the cutest lil’ kittens you’ve ever seen, as well as cheerleading chickens, because why not?

Animal Planet posted a preview of what we have to look forward to so we can familiarize ourselves with the key players and performers. This is, after all, a very serious event, so study up below!
