Sugar in Atlanta
Katrina's aftermath has forced the Sugar Bowl to move to the Georgia Dome. There was hope to keep the game in Louisiana at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge. However, with insufficient hotel rooms in Baton Rouge and the uncertainty of hotel conditions in New Orleans for the January 2 game made the move necessary.
The Georgia Dome crew will have their hands full New Year's weekend. The Peach Bowl will be played Friday December 30, the Falcons have a home game Sunday January 1, and the Sugar Bowl is the day after.
