Super Bowl (OED 1966 [25 July])

1966 _N.Y. Daily News_ 18 Jly 28C (Newspapers.com)  "I think one of the first things we'll consider is the date of the Super Bowl -- that's my term for the championship game between the two leagues. I'm in favor of playing it on a neutral site where we would be assured of good weather," [Lamar] Hunt said.
