Top 10 Sugar Bowls of All-TimeIn the three-quarters of a century history of the Sugar Bowl, there have literally been dozens of memorable games, played by a cavalcade of outstanding athletes and coached by some of the giants of the game.

How to pick the high points of an annual football extravaganza that has stretched from the Great Depression to the rebuilding of post-Katrina New Orleans? Well, it's not enough to have been just another great game. The ones listed here have some significance attached.

Marty Mulé, who covered the game and the organization for decades for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, has chronicled its highlights and low points in the book "Sugar Bowl Classic: A History.''

Any combination of Sugar Bowls could have been chosen; there have been many more outstanding pairings. But this is the ten chosen by Mulé (prior to the 2009 game), with the reasons why they were picked contained in each account.

#10 - 1935

 #6 - 1981
