  • FUTURE OF ROSE BOWL COULD BE IN JEOPARDY

         The Big Ten and the Pac-10 can reexamine their Rose Bowl
    arrangement following the 2000 season, but while Pac-10
    Commissioner Thomas Hansen expected the conference to renew its
    ties with the bowl, Big Ten spokesperson Mark Rudner refused to
    speculate on what might happen.  The conferences, which have a
    contract with ABC to meet in the Rose Bowl for the next six
    seasons, have chosen to stay out of the bowl coalition and the
    newly formed bowl alliance, which begins next season.  Rudner:
    "We're firmly committed to the Rose Bowl, it's been ingrained in
    our collective souls for so long.  But we always think ahead and
    try to think what's in everybody's best interest" (DETROIT FREE
    PRESS, 6/14).
              BIG 12 APPROVES FOOTBALL TITLE GAME:  Presidents of the
         Big 12 Conference voted 11-1 earlier this week to conduct a
         league championship football game.  Big 12 Commissioner
         Steve Hatchell has been directed to continue assembling bids
         from interested cities.  Hatchell said he expects the bids
         by June 30 and that the final decision could come in mid-
         July.  Also approved this week was the league's revenue-
         sharing proposal.  A "key part" of the plan allows Big 12
         schools to keep their own gate receipts (Wendell Barnhouse,
         FORT WORTH STAR TELEGRAM, 6/14).
