Venue: AllState Sugar Bowl Football Game
When: Monday, January 2, 2017 - 8:30pm ET / ESPN
Where: Mercedes-Benz Superdome - New Orleans, LA
Who: Auburn Tigers vs. Oklahoma Sooners
When the New Year's Six and the College Football Playoff were invented, the Sugar Bowl became contracted as an SEC vs. Big XII game. It was designed to have the runners up from each conference playing against each other, as the conference champs were merely assumed to be playing in the CFP. This year, that just isn't the case, as the Oklahoma Sooners, winners of the Big XII are playing the Auburn Tigers, merely the second best team in the SEC due to the fact that someone had to be called the second best team in a conference that had just one team with fewer than four losses at the end of the year.
That said, this game has a lot of potential. There's a bunch of NFL talent on both sides of the field, especially when the Oklahoma offense lines up against the Auburn defense. Gus Malzahn's 'D' doesn't get nearly as much credit as it should, but it'll have its shot against a high-flying Sooner offense that finished the year ranked No. 3 in the land in scoring.
The two teams to emerge from the semifinals will advance to the 2017 CFP National Championship game held at the Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Florida on Monday, Jan. 9, 2017.

Well you've come to the right place, as we get set to preview each college bowl and picks on this year's Sugar Bowl game.
Opening Line: Oklahoma -6
Preview: Money has continued to flow in on the Auburn Tigers as their game against the Oklahoma Sooners has gotten closer to kickoff. Sharps believe that Auburn is underrated because of its 8-4 record in the regular season as two of those losses came at the hands of the top two teams in the playoff. There is also a perception that Oklahoma is overrated after a running through a weak Big 12 and that its effort against Houston and Ohio State is more indicative as to what type of team this is.

The Sugar Bowl is the annual college football bowl game that matches a top SEC team with another football team. The Sugar Bowl is currently sponsored by Allstate, and was previously sponsored by Nokia. The Sugar Bowl has been played in the Lousiana Superdome since 1975, before that it was played in Tulane Stadium.
It's Popularity through the years gave the Sugar Bowl the honors of becoming a part of the BCS championship series, an honor that only five college bowl games can claim. This helps the Sugar Bowl bring in the best-of-the-best in college football each year.
As one of the four host venues for the Bowl Championship Series(BCS), and as a holiday-time tradition dating back to 1935, the Sugar Bowl, or Allstate Sugar Bowl as it was renamed in 2006, is very familiar to American sports betting fans.
Originally, the Sugar Bowl's sponsor was the USF&G Financial Services (from 1987 to 1995), later, Nokia cellular telephones of Finland (from 1995 to 2006). In March of 2006 the new sponsor became the Allstate Insurance Company.
Born in the depths of the depression, the Sugar Bowl has survived many difficulties and today ranks as one of the most uniquely successful amateur athletic achievements in the history of American sports.
The New Orleans Mid-Winter Sports Association actually became a reality when, in late October 1934, it was able to announce it had in escrow the sum of $30,000 for the promotion of the inaugural Sugar Bowl Football Classic.
The idea of a New Year's Day football classic in New Orleans was first presented in 1927 by Colonel James M. Thomson, publisher of the New Orleans Item, and Sports Editor Fred Digby.
As for the Sugar Bowl game itself, its only rightful home is the Louisiana Superdome. In the midst of the city's historical downtown district stands this world-class, state-of-the-art facility that makes New Orleans one of sporting America's favorite venues. This structure, site of six NFL Super Bowl's and four NCAA Final Fours, comfortably seats more than 72,000 fans and houses some of the finest stadium amenities in the world.
As a result of the many treasures the Nokia Sugar Bowl and the city of New Orleans have to offer, the Bowl was one of four selected by the commissioners of the country's major football conferences to rotate the BCS national championship game. Along with the Federal Express Orange Bowl, Tostitos Fiesta Bowl and the Rose Bowl, the Nokia Sugar Bowl continues to lay claim to its position as a leader in the bowl industry.
The Sugar Bowl hosted the NCAA National Championship last year, one that didn't feature the No. 1 team in America, thanks to the BCS. LSU kept Oklahoma's offense at bay with a dominating defense and an ability to overcome their mistakes for a 21-14 victory and a share of the National Championship with USC.
Played in New Orleans, LSU has taken advantage of home field advantage before last year. In 2002, they blew out the Fighting Illini with a 47-34 victory in the Louisiana Superdome. Blowouts are common in the Sugar Bowl. The 2004 National Championship was the first game to be decided by a score or less since 1995.
The Sugar Bowl was born during the Great Depression, when New Orleans decided to raise money to host a prominent football game. In 1935, Temple jumped out to a 14-0 lead, but Temple came back to win 20-14. Since then, the Sugar Bowl has taken place in every single year, even commencing through the War Years.

The Oklahoma Sooners shockingly defeated Alabama in the 2014 Sugar Bowl, riding a 31-point first half and an incredible performance by quarterback Trevor Knight to one of the most improbable wins of the BCS era.
Knight completed a Sugar Bowl-record 32 passes for 348 yards and four touchdowns, and No. 10 Oklahoma took down the third-ranked Crimson Tide, 45-31 on Thursday night.
The Sooners (11-2) ran up 433 yards of total offense against the vaunted Alabama defense and did just enough to keep Alabama from catching them during a defense-heavy second half.
The Crimson Tide (11-2) lost their first bowl game since the 2008 Sugar Bowl, and lost back-to-back games for the first time since that 2008 game.
