After that game the Sugar Bowl continued play at Tulane Stadium, until 1975, where it was then moved to the Louisiana Superdome (the home of many Super Bowl games) in New Orleans, Louisiana. In the year 2006, the game was moved to the Georgia Dome for just that year, because of the extensive damage done to the Superdome, by the natural disaster Hurricane Katrina.
Before the BCS collaboration and formation, the Sugar Bowl had normally hosted the Southeastern (SEC) champions, and then paired them up against a top tier top 5 opponent.
After the BCS gathering, the Sugar Bowl still has rights, and takes the SEC champions, unless they are to qualify for the National Championship game. If that is to happen, they will then get two other top tier teams, and choose one of those teams as the hos. The Sugar Bowl has been consistently known for decades as one of the most prestigious bowl games in the NCAA. It is among the top 4 BCS bowl games played annually, and is usually played on New Years day.
Over the last couple decades, the Sugar Bowl has changed sponsors. From USF&G Financial Services, to Nokia, and now Allstate Insurance. The Sugar Bowl is in a rotation to host the National Championship game every 4 years, which is another reason it is so attractive to sponsors. The current pay out per team in the Sugar Bowl is around 17 million dollars. The Sugar Bowl is a tradition in not only NCAA football history, but also in American history, Going strong for over 75 years, the Sugar Bowl will likely be around for many years to come.
