NO. 1 VS. NO. 2 OR YOUR MONEY BACK -- WELL, AT LEAST $5M

          CBS "will receive a $5 million rebate" for not having
     the No. 1-ranked team in its January 2 Orange Bowl telecast,
     according to Rudy Martzke of USA TODAY.  CBS now will pay
     $19M for the likely matchup of No. 2 Nebraska vs. No. 3
     Tennessee.  No. 1-ranked Michigan will play on ABC in the
     Rose Bowl.  This is CBS' final year with the Bowl Alliance,
     as ABC gets the Super Alliance next season, when the Rose
     Bowl is included, guaranteeing a No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup
     (Rudy Martzke, USA TODAY, 11/25).
