Sugar Bowl
 < 1981  1983

The 1982 edition to the Sugar Bowl featured the second place ranked Pittsburgh Panthers. The Panthers won the game, and left ranked fourth in the country, while the losing Bulldogs left the game ranked sixth in the country. It has often been called one of the greatest bowl games, and bowl upsets, of all time.[1]

Game

Dan Marino threw a short touchdown to John Brown to take the lead 17-13. Georgia scored again with a 6-yard pass and the game was 20-17. Pitt took the lead again with just 35 seconds to go with a 33-yard pass to Brown, taking it for good, and won 24-20.

Legacy

Twenty-two players from the winning team would be drafted over the next four years by the National Football League.[4] Six of them were in the first round, including Dan Marino, Jim Covert, Tim Lewis, Bill Maas, Chris Doleman, and Bill Fralic. Marino was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
