While the Sugar Bowl has not officially announced its participants, math and logic have made the announcement superfluous. The Ole Miss Rebel Black Bears and the
Baylor Normal Bears Oklahoma State Cowboys will face one another on New Years' Day in an access bowl.
That's right. Ole Miss fans will be drinking and partying in New Orleans on New Years Eve. If there's a city with enough alcohol to make that work, it's New Orleans, Louisiana. I don't think we're in danger of Bourbon Street running out of alcohol.
So, you want to go? If so, I've put together this handy dandy post that gives you quick links to game tickets and hotel rooms. I would do it for airlines as well, but... I don't know the location from which you are flying. Sorry. I'm not a genie. "That's so cool, Juco.," you say. "Thanks for doing all the work for me."
You're welcome. It took several minutes to do this.
Date: Jan. 1
Time: 7 p.m. CT
Location: [Corporate sponsor redacted] Superdome, New Orleans, La.
Stubhub (I've already plugged in the sugar bowl information)
Here's a pre-done hotel search of Priceline that assumes you'll be staying from Thursday 12/31 through Sunday 1/3. Obviously, you an easily change those dates, etc, but it's specifically set to search for hotels near the Superdome.
We will have posts between now and the bowl telling you where to drink and where to eat. Until then, get to planning your trip. I would guess prices will skyrocket soon.
