TURN BACK THE CLOCK - 1939
Friday, August 21, 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 1939 as it upgrades the basic recap for that season to a full story about legendary quarterback Davey O'Brien's trip to New Orleans. ‘Lil Davey' threw for 224 yards and added an interception on defense as the Horned Frogs held off Carnegie Tech to capture the National Championship.
