Allstate Sugar Bowl Cross Country

The Allstate Sugar Bowl sponsors a pair of cross country invitationals. It took on sponsorship of the Allstate Sugar Bowl Cross Country Festival, hosted by Loyola University, in the fall of 2015. The Sugar Bowl also began sponsoring the Allstate Sugar Bowl Cross Country Classic in 2017 – that event replaced the Metro Cross Country Championships (held from 2014-16, see below). The Bowl has also sponsored the Louisiana All-State Teams for cross country since 2008.
