This year’s game (Friday, January 1, 2016) will feature Oklahoma State University and the University of Mississippi and will be televised live by ESPN from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome beginning at 7:30 p.m. (Central). The 82nd annual Sugar Bowl Classic will feature over 70,000 fans for the 61st time in its history.
While the game is sold out, the Allstate Sugar Bowl would like to remind fans that a variety of hotel/ticket packages are still available through DMI Travel.

Finally, for fans choosing the secondary-ticket market to purchase tickets, the Allstate Sugar Bowl recommends PrimeSport as the only official, safe way to use this service.
The bowl is unable to verify the validity of tickets purchased from other third-party sources; the original ticket purchasers are the only ones who may request a reprint as well.
In addition to the college football game, the annual Allstate Fan Fest will be held on Wednesday, December 30 and Thursday, December 31 from 12-6 p.m. in the parking lot adjacent to Jax Brewery in the French Quarter. Throughout each day, Fan Fest attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a family-oriented celebration including special events, fan activities, music and other activities. All at no charge! The highlight of the event will be a free concert by a prominent national recording artist on Thursday evening at 6 p.m.
This year will also feature the inaugural Allstate Sugar Bowl New Year’s Eve Parade, a Mardi Gras-style parade with floats, bands and other participants that will be sure to entertain fans young and old as they get ready for the big game. The parade will begin at the intersection of Elysian Fields Ave. and Decatur St. at 3:30 p.m. CT. It will proceed up Decatur Street, pass through Jackson Square and the Allstate Fan Fest, wrapping up at Canal Street.
The Allstate Sugar Bowl has established itself as one of the premier college football bowl games, having hosted 27 national champions, 86 Hall of Fame players, 47 Hall of Fame coaches and 16 Heisman Trophy winners in its 81-year history. In addition to football, the Sugar Bowl Committee is involved with various community initiatives through hosting and sponsorships of sporting events, awards and clinics. Through these efforts, the organization supports and honors over 25,000 student-athletes each year, while injecting over $2 billion into the local economy in the last decade.
