TURN BACK THE CLOCK - 2000
Tuesday, December 1, 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 in recognition of the spectacular career of Florida State coach Bobby Bowden, who announced his retirement this week, the Allstate Sugar Bowl turns back the clock to the year 2000. In one of the more memorable Classics of all-time Bowden's Seminoles held off Michael Vick and Virginia Tech to capture the BCS National Championship. Also included is a special feature on the game by SI.com's Stewart Mandel, which he contributed during last year's 75th Anniversary celebration for the Sugar Bowl.
