  • ROSE BOWL IN ALLIANCE? PAC-10 OFFICIALS TO DISCUSS

         Presidents of Pac-10 schools will discuss a plan this week
    that would allow the Rose Bowl to join the college football bowl
    alliance, according to the WASHINGTON POST.  Under the current
    proposal, the Big Ten and Pac-10 champs would continue to meet in
    the Rose Bowl unless one of them is ranked No. 1 or No. 2.  In
    that case, the team would be released from the Rose Bowl to play
    for the national championship.  The replacement team would come
    from the alliance.  The Rose Bowl would also become part of the
    rotation with the Orange, Sugar and Fiesta bowls for the
    championship game.  In the year that the Rose Bowl hosts the
    national championship game, the Big Ten and Pac-10 champs would
    play elsewhere, unless they were ranked No. 1 or 2.  Univ. of
    Oregon AD Bill Moss said he expects the presidents to approve the
    proposal.  Assistant Pac-10 Commissioner Jim Muldoon said that
    even if the presidents of both conferences back the plan, they
    would also need approval from the Tournament of Roses, the bowl
    coalition, CBS and ABC.  Muldoon said the most likely time for a
    change would be in two years, when coalition members are
    scheduled to review their current structure (WASHINGTON POST,
    3/27).
