Abe Mickal led LSU into the second annual Sugar Bowl Classic on January 1, 1936.

Nicknamed “Miracle Mickal,” he was a three-time All-SEC selection and an All-American, but three days of rain made the Sugar Bowl Stadium field a quagmire and neither offense could move the ball as TCU managed to hold on for a 3-2 win.

Because of the conditions, both teams were recognized as national champions by the Williamson Poll.
