Informal talks concerning how to incorporate the Rose Bowl into the bowl alliance are expected when Division I-A commissioners meet in TX this week, according to FT. WORTH STAR TELEGRAM. Pac-10 Commissioner Tom Hansen: "It's something we've been exploring." But because the alliance contract has two more years before renewal, Hansen added, "We're not in a position to do anything of significance." Though the '95 alliance matched No. 1 against No. 2, the possibility of the top two teams being absent remains without the Pac 10 and Big Ten. Hansen: "The fact that Ohio State came within a game of going undefeated was enough to keep concerns afloat" (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM 2/5).
