WILL THE PIGSKIN CLASSIC LIVE ANOTHER YEAR?
Published December 22, 1994
The Orange Bowl Committee is trying to bring the Pigskin Classic to the Orange Bowl stadium in '96. The Classic is one of two preseason football games run by the Nat'l Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics and sanctioned by the NCAA. The Classic has been sponsored by Disneyland and played in Anaheim since the game began in '90, but Disney dropped out after attendance "plummeted to an all-time low" of 28,513 this year. Also bidding for the game was the Kickoff Classic at the Meadowlands, which wants to merge the two games beginning in '96. The OBC bid is contingent on getting a sponsor and network TV commitment (Susan Miller Degnan, MIAMI HERALD, 12/22).
