About the Sugar Bowl
With the current SEC tie-in, the Sugar Bowl is known throughout the Southeast United States as one of the biggest games of the year. When the SEC Champion is already slated for the BCS National Championship game, the Sugar Bowl usually simply selects the next highest-ranked SEC team still available in the BCS Pool. With the SEC arguably the most powerful and dominant NCAA Division I football conference of the last few years, that means that the Sugar Bowl usually boasts at least one top-five BCS team.
With the SEC - Sugar Bowl tie-in, it is no wonder that Southeastern Conference teams have been to more Sugar Bowls than teams from most other conferences. The top 6 teams as far as number of appearances in the Sugar Bowl are all SEC squads, the perennially tough Alabama Crimson Tide and LSU Tigers leading the way with 13 appearances apiece, with Alabama winning 8 times and LSU 6. Georgia is next up with 9 appearances and 4 wins, Ole Miss and Florida have each been 8 times, with the Rebels winning 5 contests and Florida 3 times. Tennessee has made it to the Sugar Bowl 7 times, and has 4 wins against 3 losses.
But plenty of schools other than SEC colleges have had great success in the Sugar Bowl over the years. Georgia Tech is a perfect 4 - 0 in Sugar Bowl play, Nebraska is 3 - 1 in their four trips, the University of Pittsburgh is 2 - 1 in three Sugar Bowl contests, and the Oklahoma Sooners and Florida State Seminoles are each an impressive 4 - 2 in their six appearances. But someone has to be on the losing side of all those wins, and North Carolina and Tulsa are each 0 - 2, while the usually strong postseason play of both Penn State and Virginia Tech is nonexistent in the Sugar Bowl, as both colleges have posted 1 - 3 records in their four appearances.
The Sugar Bowl is one of the most respected institutions in all of Division I College Football, and adding a Sugar Bowl title to one's resume is an accomplishment that no college player ever forgets. An SEC team has won 7 out of the last 10 Sugar Bowl games that conference has appeared in, and the savvy college football bettor will definitely have that in mind when it comes time for postseason wagering on the sweetest bowl game of the year.
