Next, the #2 Washington Huskies (13-0) face the #3 Texas Longhorns (12-1) in the Allstate Sugar Bowl, the second of two college football semifinals this New Year’s Day. The winner moves on to National Championship Game in Houston, Texas on January 8th. We have not seen a particularly competitive Sugar Bowl since the last time Texas played in the game on New Year’s Day 2019. Hopefully, this game will play out more like that one and less like the games that followed it.

The Sugar Bowl, taking place in my, and many of your, birthplace of New Orleans, in the beloved Superdome, always makes this game a must watch for Saints fans. Along with the Fiesta, Orange, and Rose, the Sugar Bowl has long been regarded as one of the most prestigious and celebrated bowl games in all of college football, and this playoff game only adds to its prestige. This game could be fantastic!
