in 96 Sun bowl pays million dollars to each team, pay Stanford & Mich St half million to stay at home, which is take home after travell expenses. Wym - ND would have made 3 million dollars for Sun bowl. I can't believe TV, sponsers, city, MWC & higher ticket prices could not pull this off.

The Holiday Bowl and the Copper/Insight Bowl both said they did not like the WAC 16 and dropped the WAC on the next Bowl negotiation. It was no secret both Bowls wanted BYU to play in their Bowl as often as possible, the WAC 16 reduced the chances by a whole bunch and the new members did not excite either Bowl. TCU, SMU, Rice, Tulsa, UNLV, and San Jose St did nothing to help the WAC retain either Bowl tie-in, in fact both Bowls worried about the thought of getting stuck with one of these teams in their Bowl game.

I was not aware of Holiday & Insight showing concern over WAC 16. I did see in early 90's atten droped in Holiday bowl with Colo St & Haw. Insight looked they were still getting good matchups [web page down], I can't believe Atten did not take hit when Insight brought in BE. I guess TV ratings went up.
