     The NCAA Special Events Committee has revoked certification
for the '96 Haka Bowl since the bowl did not meet its October 15
deadline to provide a required financial guarantee.  The bowl was
to have matched the third-place teams from the PAC-10 and the WAC
in a game in Auckland, New Zealand, December 27 (NCAA).  The
absence of the Haka Bowl means the PAC-10 is guaranteed just four
bowl berths, instead of five (S.F. CHRONICLE, 10/17).  The Haka
Bowl planned to pay each team $1.5M and had a sponsorship
agreement with Air New Zealand (USA TODAY, 10/17).
