SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Utah Utes are BCS busters no more.

A celebration at the state Capitol marked Utah’s transition Friday from the Mountain West Conference to the Pac-12, one of the six BCS conferences.

Nearly 2,000 people gathered to listen to Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott and a host of other dignitaries.

Scott said Utah, which was the first non-BCS school to play in a BCS bowl game, has a healthy combination of academic and athletic success to make the school a perfect fit in the league.
