LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A. F. "Bud" Dudley, executive director of the Liberty Bowl, spent the afternoon scouting both the home team and visiting Navy for a possible invitation to Memphis, Dec. 28.By the end of yesterday's 28-0 blowout, Navy (4-3) was all but dead in the water while the explosive Cardinals (7-1) improved their chances considerably."I'm not ready to make any announcement just yet, but Louisville certainly helped itself," Dudley said."Navy played very competitively, especially in the first half, but, as you know, to invite a service academy, we require at least six wins against Division I teams.

The NCAA rejected a petition from the Liberty Bowl to allow it to invite Alcorn State and Heisman Trophy-contending quarterback Steve McNair to the Dec. 31 game.The NCAA cited two reasons:* To qualify for a Division I-A bowl, a team must have at least six victories against I-A teams. Alcorn doesn't even play I-A teams.* Division I-AA has a championship game and the Braves (5-2) might qualify to play in it.

The Naval Academy is expected to announce today that its football team has been selected to play in the Emerald Bowl in San Francisco on Dec. 30. Gary Cavalli, the bowl's executive director, traveled from the West Coast to be in Annapolis on Saturday to watch the Midshipmen rout Rutgers, 54-21, and was in a position to offer a bid because the Pacific-10 Conference did not qualify enough teams to fill one slot in the game. He had expressed strong interest in Navy for several weeks, citing the team's backing of 25,000 fans in Houston last year.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The Baltimore Stallions and the Memphis Mad Dogs faced off at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium last night, on a field that features perhaps the most unusual field in the Canadian Football League.The end zones are 14 yards deep, instead of the CFL-regulation 20 yards, and that only accounts for the deepest part of them.They are shaped like half-pentagons, not rectangles, thanks to a field that cannot accommodate the CFL. The sidelines extend just six yards into the end zone, before the lines veer diagonally to the zone's deepest point.
