FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - One of the state's largest utility providers says rolling statewide electrical outages will not affect Cowboys Stadium, the site of Sunday's Super Bowl.

Oncor spokeswoman Jeamy Molina said the stadium in suburban Arlington was exempt from outages that started about 6 a.m. Wednesday. Molina said other Super Bowl facilities, such as team hotels, were not exempt.

The outages were planned for 15-minute intervals in response to high demand from a rare ice storm. Oncor serves about 7 million customers in Texas.

The first Super Bowl week in Dallas-Fort Worth has been hit by the region's coldest spell in years.
