Representatives of the Sugar, Fiesta and Orange bowls made their bids to join a new “Super Alliance” that will guarantee a true national championship game in college football beginning in 1999.

The key issue appears to be whether the Bowl Alliance committee plans to reopen bids from other games that have been shut out.
