SEWING UP DEALS FOR COLLEGE FOOTBALL BOWL GAMES
Published March 21, 1995
Turner Sports has acquired the rights to produce and air the Carquest Bowl from Raycom Inc. The 3-year deal for the game, which is played at Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami, begins with the upcoming '95 season and will be aired by TBS. Raycom will still manage the event. Raycom CEO Rick Ray: "We are pleased that Turner Sports will be our new partner for the Carquest Bowl. Turner's wide-ranging capabilities will continue to uphold the outstanding reputation of the Carquest Bowl" (Turner). According to this morning's MIAMI HERALD, while the TV deal appears "firmly in place, there are still concerns that Carquest Auto Parts" may not renew their title sponsorship. Carquest board members are scheduled to meet in mid-April to decide the company's role (Steve Wyche, MIAMI HERALD, 3/21). TRULY A CONFERENCE CALL: The Bowl Alliance has completed its contract with the FedEx Orange, Dial Fiesta and USF&G Sugar Bowls, and will review the 50-page document with the conference commissioners by phone tomorrow. If no problems arise, the contract will be delivered to the three bowls next week. The Orange Bowl needs the contract with the Bowl Alliance to be finalized in order to ink two other deals: One with Joe Robbie Stadium and the other with FedEx to continue as title sponsor (MIAMI HERALD, 3/21).
