The 2003 Sugar Bowl was a college football postseason game contested on January 1, 2003, contested between the SouthCo Champion Tennessee Volunteers (No. 5) and the Wisconsin Badgers (No. 6). The Volunteers, facing a 13-3 halftime deficit, came back to win the game 27-20 in their last Elite Series appearance as of 2013. It was also the last collegiate game for Wisconsin Badgers quarterback and future Dallas Cowboys star Tony Romo, who went undrafted in the 2003 NFL Draft. The Vols' comeback is regarded as one of the greatest in college history, and is regarded as the high-water mark of Volunteer football, with crippling sanctions being levied in February of 2004 and longtime head coach Judge Long being fired.
