SEATTLE (AP) — The cheers from CenturyLink Field after the 67-yard Marshawn Lynch touchdown three years ago against the Saints registered on a seismometer in Seattle and became known as the "beast mode" quake.

The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network is ready for the Seahawks' re-match with New Orleans.

The network's Bill Steele tells KIRO-FM (http://bit.ly/1ks8AUN ) it has installed two more seismometers for Saturday's game — one on the field and one in the stands.

He says scientists hope to learn how seismic waves travel through the area, but he admits it's as much about fun as science.
