NFL PLAYOFFS FORCE FEDEX ORANGE BOWL TO RETURN HOME
Published November 13, 1998
The FedEx Orange Bowl "will move" back to Miami's Orange Bowl for the first time since the game moved to Pro Player Stadium after the '96 season, according to Susan Miller Degnan of the MIAMI HERALD. The move, which is for this season only, was needed because of the possibility of a Dolphins playoff game at Pro Player Stadium on Saturday, January 2, the same day the Orange Bowl is scheduled. Other dates to remain at Pro Player -- December 31, January 1 and January 3 -- were eliminated because the Sugar Bowl "refused to switch" its January 1 game date with the Orange Bowl and ABC Sports said it could not broadcast the game on the other days. An option to move the game to Gainesville was also rejected. The Miami City Commission is expected to approve the change at its meeting Tuesday (MIAMI HERALD, 11/13).
