FAYETTEVILLE — All Razorback fans can get ready for the 2011 Allstate Sugar Bowl by replaying the Razorback Classics episode covering the Hogs’ victory over Georgia at the 1969 event.
Razorback Classics was a series of television shows hosted by former athletic director Frank Broyles that covered great moments in Arkansas football history. The archive of Razorback Classics is a part of the RazorVision subscription service of ArkansasRazorbacks.com.
However, for this holiday week leading up to the start of bowl practice in New Orleans, the 1969 Sugar Bowl episode is available for free viewing.
The 1969 game saw the Razorbacks down Georgia, 16-2, before a sellout crowd at Tulane Stadium. Chuck Dicus was the Miller-Digby Award for the outstanding player in the Sugar Bowl with his 12 catches for 169 yards.
Dicus’ catches and the throwing arm of Bill Montgomery were keys to victory as the Razorbacks put up 185 yards in the air, mostly to Dicus. The screen capture from the old television footage above shows Dicus heading into the endzone for the game’s only touchdown, a 27-yard reception from Montgomery.
Arkansas used three field goals for Bob White the rest of its points.
Both Dicus and White are interviewed for the show.
Fans can learn more about the 1969 game, including the full game statistics, by looking at the on-line postseason Sugar Bowl media book.
