  • COTTON BOWL FACES CHANGES AFTER ARTHUR ANDERSEN STUDY

         The Cotton Bowl Athletic Association yesterday announced the
    results of a study by Arthur Andersen LLP on the Tier 1 bowl
    selection process, the Cotton Bowl Classic, and the future of
    post-season college football.  The study and resulting changes,
    were approved by the CBAA Board of Directors in an effort to keep
    the 60-year-old bowl game "at the top level of college football."
    Among the changes: reducing the board by 1/3 to 50 members;
    designating the top volunteer position as Chair & CEO, and naming
    the Exec Dir as President of the CBAA.  The new plan also calls
    for less reliance on university affiliation for the selection of
    board members.  The study said the game should be played at the
    best stadium in the Dallas area, ideally a domed stadium or a
    Super Bowl-qualifying stadium.  Cotton Bowl President John
    Crawford added the work is ongoing to find new sponsorship for
    the Cotton Bowl (CBAA).
         NO BIG 12 TITLE GAME?  Big 12 Commissioner Steve Hatchell
    said there is a "possibility" the conference won't have a
    football championship game in its first year of existence in '96
    (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 10/3).
