          Terms of a settlement that may occur "as early as
     today," provide an Alliance bowl invitation to Western
     Athletic Conference and Conference USA schools ranked eighth
     or higher, according to NEWDAY's Ivan Maisel. The settlement
     "may take the impetus away from the request" of four U.S.
     Senators that the Justice Department and the FTC initiate an
     antitrust investigation of the Bowl Alliance.  Commissioners
     of major Div. I-A conferences discussed the settlement
     during a Monday conference call.  Alliance Chair and SEC
     Commissioner Roy Kramer: "We're moving in the direction of a
     settlement" (NEWSDAY, 3/19).
