          NOTES: Attendance figures were reported by the bowls
     and represent the number of tickets sold.  Tickets for the
     Aloha and Oahu Bowls, played in Aloha Stadium, were good for
     both games.  The Music City Bowl was played this year at
     Adelphia Coliseum, capacity 65,000.  It was played last year
     at Vanderbilt Stadium, capacity 41,000.  This was the first
     year for the Mobile Alabama Bowl (THE DAILY). Overall, only
     four bowl games were sold out, and 13 of 23 bowls had crowds
     at least 5,000 short of capacity (SEATTLE TIMES, 1/6).
