In preparation for the big game, two chefs duked it out on "Good Morning America" to see who could make the best Super Bowl dip. Hailing from Philadelphia, Chef Jack McDavid of Jack's Firehouse whipped up a Philly Guacamole Dip, and from New England, Chef Paul O'Connell, of Boston's Chez Henri, made a New England Clam and Lobster Dip.

Eighteen U.S. Marines were on hand to vote for the winner. The vote came down by a nose on the side of McDavid's Philly Guacamole.
