  • ORANGE BOWL GETS AUSPICIOUS DEADLINE FROM BOWL ALLIANCE

         College football Bowl Alliance commissioners set a deadline:
    The Orange Bowl Committee (OBC) must tell them by October 12
    where the FedEx Orange Bowl will be played after the 1996 season.
    A vote on whether to move the game to Joe Robbie Stadium will be
    held October 11.  The commissioners told OBC President Ed
    Williamson that regardless of whether the Bowl Alliance presents
    the OBC with a contract for review, they want to know where the
    game will be played, and they expect the answer to be Joe Robbie
    Stadium.  The Commissioners also let it be known that they will
    not give the "Save The Orange Bowl" Committee an opportunity to
    present a proposal of how the Orange Bowl stadium could be
    improved.  They said a neutral bowl site is more important than
    the amenities.  "Translation, they don't want the University of
    Miami to play for a national championship on their home field"
    (Susan Miller Degnan, MIAMI HERALD, 10/4).
