COLLEGE FOOTBALL TO GO NORTH? TORONTO MAY HOST BOWL GAME

          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).
