TURN BACK THE CLOCK - 1960

Monday, November 23, 2009

 


As part of the new look of www.AllstateSugarBowl.org, the website's history section has been greatly expanded. The history section includes many stories that highlight the rich tradition from the first 75 years of the Classic, including stories on No. 1 teams and Heisman Trophy winners, a ranking of the top Sugar Bowls of all-time, photo galleries of the game's Most Valuable Players and all of the game program covers, as well as recaps and statistics from each game. The site's history section will continue to expand and this week, the Allstate Sugar Bowl turns back the clock to 1960 and the memorable Sugar Bowl between Ole Miss and LSU - a rematch of the "Game of the Century" from Halloween night of 1959 when LSU's Billy Cannon cut loose with a fourth-quarter superhuman 89-yard punt return for a touchdown in LSU's 7-3 victory.
