BOWL ALLIANCE MAY REACH COMPROMISE WITH WAC, CONFERENCE USA
Published March 19, 1997
Terms of a settlement that may occur "as early as today," provide an Alliance bowl invitation to Western Athletic Conference and Conference USA schools ranked eighth or higher, according to NEWDAY's Ivan Maisel. The settlement "may take the impetus away from the request" of four U.S. Senators that the Justice Department and the FTC initiate an antitrust investigation of the Bowl Alliance. Commissioners of major Div. I-A conferences discussed the settlement during a Monday conference call. Alliance Chair and SEC Commissioner Roy Kramer: "We're moving in the direction of a settlement" (NEWSDAY, 3/19).
