NCAA WON'T NEED ITS PASSPORTS UNTIL THE 2000 BOWL SEASON

          A proposed World College Bowl "won't be held at the
     SkyDome this December," as the NCAA told event organizers the
     earliest date the game can be staged is December 2000,
     according to John Kryk of the TORONTO SUN.  Kryk writes that
     it is "believed" that the World College Bowl "soon will work
     out a deal" with Fox Sports Net, which has an agreement to
     cover MAC football and basketball games, that would allow the
     conference runner-up to gain an automatic berth in the bowl
     game.  The event is the "brainchild" of Toronto business exec
     Calder Spence (TORONTO SUN, 2/3).
