Alabama finished the regular season as SEC champions with a record of 10–0. Although undefeated and playing as two-time defending national champions, Alabama did not win the national title in 1966.[4] Instead voters rewarded Notre Dame after coach Ara Parseghian, with his team tied 10–10 with Michigan State with 1:10 to go, chose to play for the tie rather than attempt to win the game.[4] The Fighting Irish and Spartans both finished 9–0–1, did not play in a bowl game, and were ranked first and second in the polls, while Alabama was third;[4] both major polls released their final editions in early December, prior to the bowl games. It was the fifth time for Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, and their twentieth bowl appearance.


Nebraska finished the regular season as Big 8 Champions with a record of 9–1. The only loss of the season came in their final game against Oklahoma by a score of 10–9.[5] In a rematch of the previous season's Orange Bowl, it was the first time for Nebraska in the Sugar Bowl, and their seventh bowl appearance.[5]

Game summary

Alabama scored on its first three offensive possessions to take a 17–0 lead.[2] Leslie Kelley and Ken Stabler scored touchdowns on runs of one and 14 yards, with Steve Davis adding a 30-yard field goal late in the quarter.[6] A six-yard Wayne Trimble touchdown run in the second quarter gave the Crimson Tide a 24–0 lead at the half.[6]

Alabama extended their lead to 27–0 after a 40-yard Steve Davis field goal, Nebraska scored their first points early in the fourth quarter. Dick Davis made a 15-yard touchdown reception from Bob Churchich to cut the lead to 27–7.[6] Alabama closed the game with a 45-yard Ray Perkins touchdown reception from Stabler to bring the final score to 34–7.[6] Alabama quarterback Ken Stabler was selected as the games Most Valuable Player for completing 12 of 18 passes for 218 yards and two total touchdowns.[7]

It was Alabama's last win in a bowl for nine years, until the Sugar Bowl in December 1975. Nebraska did not make a bowl in the next two seasons, but returned the favor five years later in the 1972 Orange Bowl, with a decisive 38–6 win to repeat as national champions.
