Former Alabama football greats Cornelius Bennett and Derrick Thomas are among 75 players named to the Sun Bowl Association's 75th Anniversary All-Sun Bowl Team.

The Sun Bowl is played every year during college football's post-season in El Paso, Texas.

Bennett played in the 1983 Sun Bowl against SMU and the 1986 Sun Bowl against Washington. He was named the Sun Bowl MVP in 1986.

Thomas was on the 1986 Sun Bowl squad, then helped the 1988 team record a comeback win over Army. Thomas was also named the 1988 Jimmy Rogers, Jr. Most Valuable Lineman.

The Crimson Tide has appeared in three Sun Bowl games, with wins over #6 SMU in 1983, Washington in 1986, and Army in 1988.
