     Athletic directors in the Big 12 expect to decide today
where to play their football championship game, according to the
HOUSTON CHRONICLE.  "There remains a sentiment among some league
athletic directors that the game should not be played," because
they believe "it could hurt the chances" for a Big 12 team to win
a national championship and for a second team to earn a Tier I
bowl bid.  Others contend it should be put off until after '96 to
see how Tier I bowl selections go this year" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE,
10/24).

     The Cotton and Sun bowl games "need to find some
corporations with deep pockets soon," writes Steve Richardson in
today's DALLAS MORNING NEWS, or they could go the way of the
Bluebonnet Bowl, which ended in '87.  Richardson reports the CBAA
"isn't panicking yet," but some sponsor, several presenting
sponsors or a combination "will need to come forward in the next
few months if the bowl is to survive."  The CBAA has no deadline
to secure new sponsorship money (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 10/24).
