The Pro Bowl will avoid a television blackout in Hawaii. 

NFL officials said Friday the game set for Sunday has sold enough tickets to allow the game to air live in the state. Officials say there are a limited number of tickets left for the game set for 7 p.m. EST on NBC. 

The Pro Bowl is the NFL’s all-star game, pitting the best players from the NFC and AFC against one another.
