TURN BACK THE CLOCK - 1981
Friday, August 7, 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 1981 when 77,896 fans, including President Jimmy Carter, watched a young freshman back by the name of Herschel Walker score a pair of touchdowns to lead Georgia to a national championship with a 17-10 win over Notre Dame.
