CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Orange Bowl and the Florida Citrus Bowl are engaging in a rapidly escalating war of words as each pushes to create a national championship matchup in its arena.The Citrus is the interloper, a previously "minor" bowl and no threat to the powerful Orange in the past. But things have changed abruptly. The Citrus is in the third year of a working agreement with the Atlantic Coast Conference, and this year it is required to take the ACC champion.This year, that champion might be No. 1 Virginia.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Upsets among the college football elite have the Florida Citrus Bowl clinging to a hope that its Atlantic Coast Conference contract still can bear the fruit of a national championship game.The No. 1 Virginia Cavaliers lost on Saturday. But the Citrus Bowl's depression turned to optimism after learning the Cavaliers' conquerors -- fellow ACC member Georgia Tech -- emerged as the country's only unbeaten team eligible to play for a wire-service national championship. The Ramblin' Wreck is 7-0-1 and needs to beat Wake Forest to win the ACC. Houston is the only NCAA Division I team without a loss or a tie (8-0)

NEW YEAR'S DAY, for many of us, might have been a time to take inventory of our stocked water, canned goods and the like that was never needed. Others may have been recovering from too much pre-Y2K fun. But for Joyce Watkins, a senior at Francis Scott Key High School, it was a day in the sun among the Florida citrus. On Jan. 1, Watkins was on a football field in Orlando, Fla., facing a crowd of 70,000 spectators who were waiting to watch the Citrus Bowl Millennium half-time bowl show.

If you're wondering why the Big Ten has earned its well-deserved reputation as the most arrogant and overrated conference in the country, simply examine its recent decision to sign with the Holiday Bowl and the Citrus Bowl.With the stroke of commissioner Jim Delany's pen, the Big Ten managed to remove itself from the so-called bowl alliance and the consortium's quest to create, beginning next year, a more viable national championship scenario. The conference also made few friends among the consortium's bowl participants -- the Orange, Cotton, Sugar and Fiesta.

MIAMI -- To Virginia athletic director Jim Copeland, this all seems a little ludicrous.Copeland was playing the phone like a violin last year, pleading with bowl scouts to come watch the Cavaliers. Now No. 1 Virginia is college football's scalding-hot property and the team that will touch the first domino before 19 bowl games eventually cascade into place."It's unbelievable," Copeland said yesterday. "We've never been in this position."Virginia's standing is so strong that two of the Orange Bowl's top officials will soon fly to Greensboro, N.C., intent on lobbying Atlantic Coast Conference commissioner Gene Corrigan for a shot at the Cavaliers.
