IT'S ALMOST OFFICIAL THE ORANGE BOWL WILL MOVE TO JRS

     Orange Bowl Committee members were told by Deputy ACC
Commissioner Tom Mickle, "an architect of the new college
football Bowl Alliance," that the FedEx Orange Bowl Game will
move from the Orange Bowl to Joe Robbie Stadium (JRS).  The OBC's
advisory council recommended the move to the full OBC last month
or risk being replaced in the Tier I Bowl Alliance by the Outback
Steakhouse Gator Bowl.  The OBC will officially vote on moving
the game October 11.  Mickle said moving the game was "critical"
in selecting the Orange Bowl.  The Orange hosts the potential
title game in '98; the Dial Fiesta Bowl hosts it in '96; and the
USF&G Sugar Bowl hosts in '97 (Susan Miller Degnan, MIAMI HERALD,
