Published November 25, 1997
CBS "will receive a $5 million rebate" for not having the No. 1-ranked team in its January 2 Orange Bowl telecast, according to Rudy Martzke of USA TODAY. CBS now will pay $19M for the likely matchup of No. 2 Nebraska vs. No. 3 Tennessee. No. 1-ranked Michigan will play on ABC in the Rose Bowl. This is CBS' final year with the Bowl Alliance, as ABC gets the Super Alliance next season, when the Rose Bowl is included, guaranteeing a No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup (Rudy Martzke, USA TODAY, 11/25).
