ROSE BOWL IN ALLIANCE? PAC-10 OFFICIALS TO DISCUSS
Published May 29, 1996
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).
