HAKA BOWL HACKED BY THE NCAA
Published October 17, 1996
The NCAA Special Events Committee has revoked certification for the '96 Haka Bowl since the bowl did not meet its October 15 deadline to provide a required financial guarantee. The bowl was to have matched the third-place teams from the PAC-10 and the WAC in a game in Auckland, New Zealand, December 27 (NCAA). The absence of the Haka Bowl means the PAC-10 is guaranteed just four bowl berths, instead of five (S.F. CHRONICLE, 10/17). The Haka Bowl planned to pay each team $1.5M and had a sponsorship agreement with Air New Zealand (USA TODAY, 10/17).
