Statement from Governor Jan Brewer: Fiesta Bowl

Statement from Governor Jan Brewer
The Fiesta Bowl

“Wednesday’s announcement that the Fiesta Bowl will maintain its Bowl Championship Series standing is good news for supporters of the Bowl and great news for Arizona. The Fiesta Bowl is a signature Arizona sporting event and critical economic driver for our travel and tourism industry.

“It’s wonderful that the Fiesta Bowl will maintain its status. But it remains important that Bowl leaders continue to implement reforms and improve oversight so that the alleged financial and other improprieties of this episode are never repeated.

“In that regard, I’ll continue to work with a special panel I convened to assist the Fiesta Bowl in this effort. Our work is not yet complete. But word of the BCS’ endorsement is encouragement that the Fiesta Bowl is on the right track.”
