Utah Fans Celebrate As Utes Offiically Join Pac-12
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.
