Always an entertaining event, DIRECTV's Sixth Annual Celebrity Beach Bowl took place at Victory Field in Indianapolis, Indiana on Saturday afternoon (February 4).

Adding plenty of eye candy to the no-holds-barred flag football match, Nina Dobrev, Kate Upton, Maria Menounos and Chrissy Teigen were among the celebrities suiting up for the gridiron competition.

For the pre-Super Bowl game, "How I Met Your Mother" star Neil Patrick Harris and "Blue Collar" hunk Matt Bomer were named as "celebrity assistant coaches” while Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton and the Detroit Lions’ gunslinger Matthew Stafford acted as head coaches.

With former footballers Joe Montana and Warren Moon serving as quarterbacks, other celebs partaking in the event included "Gossip Girl"actor Chace Crawford and singer Jordin Sparks, as well as "True Blood" stud Joe Manganiello and rapper Snoop Dogg.

Rounding out the slate of competitors were Candica Accola, Erin Andrews and David Arquette, who said of his time in Indy, "What I really like about Super Bowl in general is that it introduces you to another city. Indianapolis is a beautiful city a lot of people might not know about or have not visited. To come here and to meet the people and see the city, that is my favorite part actually."
