NEW YORK (PIX11) — Forget the Super Bowl, the biggest competition is on the sand for the DirecTV Celebrity Beach Bowl.

The game pits celebrities, models and NFL players against each other for a friendly game of tossing the pig skin.

It has become one of the largest must-attend events of Super Bowl weekend.

The stars put on their best game faces for the beach bowl at Hudson River Park Pier 40, which thanks to more than one million pounds of sand became the world’s largest indoor beach.

No tackling was allowed in this game but the stars weren’t afraid to show their grit on the gridiron.
