NFL PLAYOFFS FORCE FEDEX ORANGE BOWL TO RETURN HOME

          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).
