“If there is any such move under

it." Wade said.
Under present conference rules,
no team may accept a bowl bid
without getting , permission from

ever, it had been rumored that
the conference was polling Its
members to decide whether the
rule should be relaxed.
Wade told the United Press that
the rumors were “groundless.”
