NCAA WON'T NEED ITS PASSPORTS UNTIL THE 2000 BOWL SEASON
Published February 3, 1999
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).
