There has never been a scoreless half of football in any Super Bowl.

The closest thing was the first half of Super Bowl IX, back in January 1975, when the Steelers led the Vikings 2-0 at halftime. Pittsburgh won 16-6.

More recently, there was the tough-on-the-eyes Super Bowl LIII, in which New England held a 3-0 halftime lead over Los Angeles in February 2019. The Patriots ultimately won 13-3 in the lowest-scoring Super Bowl of all time.
