Alabama has a long and illustrious history in the city of New Orleans, the site of its upcoming College Football Playoff semifinal game in the Sugar Bowl. But in the recent past, the Sugar Bowl hasn’t been kind to the Crimson Tide.

Believe it or not, Alabama last won a Sugar Bowl at the conclusion of the 1992 season, punctuating an undefeated season with a national championship win over Miami 34-13 on Jan. 1, 1993. Since that time, however, in three Sugar Bowl appearances, Alabama is 0-3, including losses to Utah, Oklahoma and Ohio State.
