Big 12 and SEC to Meet in 2016 Allstate Sugar Bowl park
The Allstate Sugar Bowl secured its future through January 2026 with the announcement that it would host the champions of the Southeastern and Big 12 Conferences in eight of the 12 years between 2014 and 2025. If the champion of either or both leagues is selected for the College Football Playoff, a replacement team from that conference will play in the Sugar Bowl. In the four seasons that the Sugar Bowl is not hosting the Big 12 and the SEC (2014, 2017, 2020, 2023), it will serve as a College Football Playoff Semifinal.
After last year's Playoff Semifinal game, this year's Allstate Sugar Bowl will be the first as the official destination for the top available teams from the Big 12 and the SEC. To lead into the season, the Bowl is providing brief previews of each team in the leagues.
The Allstate Sugar Bowl will be previewing the upcoming season for each of the schools in the conferences in the coming weeks. In addition to a look at key early games, we will look at bowl projections, a senior spotlight and a "Sugar Spotlight," some connection the school has to the Sugar Bowl.
