Utah to the Pac-10?
February 9, 2010
The allure of a conference tournament may be too much to hold off on tradition of the Pac-10 football conference.
Utah might be headed to the Pac-10. A report from ABC4 in Salt Lake City says Utah will be invited to the Pac-10 conference, while BYU was left out of the guest list.
But there’s a long way to go before any of this happens. The Pac-10 has to first decide that they are expanding, like the Big Ten. Then they might invite two schools to their conference to allow for a conference championship and a better scheduling format. ABC4 speculates that Utah and Colorado might be the two additions.
The TV station adds: “The Pac-10 TV deal is about to expire, and a new TV partner would want the league to have a football championship game, which requires the league to have 12 teams.”
At least they didn’t invite BYU. Utah, I can stomach, after spending some time in the state for college. They have all the major programs that can help drive revenue and athletes to the school.
