COLLEGE FOOTBALL TO GO NORTH? TORONTO MAY HOST BOWL GAME
Published December 2, 1998
An annual U.S. football college bowl game could be held at SkyDome "as soon as next year" if bowl organizers "can show the NCAA the money," according to John Kryk of the TORONTO SUN. The proposed World College Bowl, the idea of Toronto business exec Calder Spence, would be the first post-season college game ever to be played outside the U.S. The game would be played the weekend before Christmas and match up the second-place team from the MAC with an at-large team. The bowl would "likely" be broadcast in the U.S. by Fox Sports Net, which carries MAC football and basketball games. CTV SportsNet could show the game in Canada. NCAA approval will not come before April (TORONTO SUN, 12/2).
