NEW BOWL GAME, EH? TORONTO GETTING COLLEGE POSTSEASON GAME?

          Organizers of the World College Bowl (WCB), a proposed
     U.S. college football bowl game in Toronto, have submitted
     an official application to the NCAA, according to John Kryk
     of the TORONTO SUN.  The WCB, which would be held at SkyDome
     the Saturday before Christmas in '99, received the required
     US$2M line of credit from a U.S. bank earlier this week.  
     The group must still make a presentation to the NCAA bowl
     certification committee in April (TORONTO SUN, 12/18).
          TAR HEELS PAYING OUT:  The Univ. of NC (UNC) will
     likely "absorb 6,000 unsold tickets" for this weekend's Las
     Vegas Bowl.  As part of the bowl contract, UNC was "required
     to purchase" an allotment of 8,500 tickets, 2,500 of which
     have been sold.  UNC Dir of Ticket Ops Daren Lucas: "That's
     pretty good interest considering everything.  It's a
     difficult trip for a lot of our fans."  The unsold tickets
     will cost UNC approximately $270,000.  UNC's opponent, San
     Diego State, "is expected" to sell its entire allotment of
     tickets (Kevin Iole, LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 12/18).
