MIAMI GROUP MAKES PUSH TO KEEP ORANGE BOWL AT HOME
Published September 27, 1994
A vote that will determine the fate of the FedEx Orange Bowl has been delayed two weeks and possibly as long as three months if the city of Miami gets its way. At a special Orange Bowl Committee (OBC) meeting to discuss a pending contract that would "force a change" from the Orange Bowl to Joe Robbie Stadium, OBC President Ed Williamson told members "the new college football bowl alliance will need at least two more weeks to draw up a contract for the OBC to review." The review period will be at least another two weeks making the earliest date to vote on moving the game October 24 instead of October 11. A Save the Orange Bowl Committee has requested that the OBC delay its vote at least 90 days to review the situation and further examine what the city of Miami could do in conjunction with the Univ. of Miami to improve the facility -- including adding skyboxes, restaurants, media accommodations, restrooms and parking improvements (Susan Miller Degnan, MIAMI HERALD, 9/27).
