Alabama and Kansas State face off in a much-anticipated Sugar Bowl matchup on Saturday at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans.
Kansas State (10-3) already made a historic mark before game time. The Wildcats notched their school’s third Big 12 championship after they defeated TCU 31-28 in an overtime thriller. They’re also winners in their last four games.
Now, the stakes raise for an underdog Kansas State team who will enter its first-ever Sugar Bowl game. And what greater test on such a stage than to go up against an elite powerhouse program.
“We didn’t come here just to say, ‘Hey, we made a Sugar Bowl,'” Kansas State offensive lineman Cooper Beebe said, per Yahoo Sports.
As for No. 5 Alabama, they dominated their regular season. The Crimson Tide finished 10-2, which included six wins against SEC opponents. The campaign marked the school’s 15th straight 10-win season. Alabama has fallen in three of its last four Sugar Bowl appearances. However, in its most recent in 2018, they defeated the Clemson Tigers.
The Crimson Tide are a 7-point betting favorite, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.
