John Legend and wife Chrissy Teigen are going head to head on the football field!

Ahead of Sunday's big 2014 Super Bowl, the adorable star couple will play against each other on opposing teams during DirecTV's 8th Annual Celebrity Beach Bowl at NYC's DTV SuperFan Stadium.

"I look forward to the DirecTV Celebrity Beach Bowl every year," Teigen tells E! News exclusively. "I actually consider myself a Beach Bowl vet now. It's always such a hilarious, random group of people and I like to think of myself as the team cheerleader/bartender. I rarely touch the ball and mostly make sand angels but I try to make sure everyone has a great time. Now that John is playing, I plan on making touch football ‘extremely touchy football.'"

The game, which includes both celebrities and real NFL athletes, will be held on one million pounds of freshly poured sand and is free and open to the public.

In addition to Teigen and Legend, other stars who will be included in this year's pigskin game include Nina Dobrev, James Marsden, Aaron Paul, Maria Menounos, Tracy Morgan, Peter Facinelli, Shay Mitchell, Guy Fieri and more, including E!'s own Alicia Quarles. NFL stars who will also get their game on include Tony Gonzalez, Joe Montana, Warren Moon, Jesse Palmer, Deion Sanders, LaDainian Tomlinson, Amani Toomer, Jon Ritchie and Desmond Howard.

You can catch the DirecTV Celebrity Beach Bowl live at 2 p.m. ET this Saturday on DirecTV.
