The Associated Press talked with Mountain West commission Craig Thompson about a potential move of Utah to the Pac-10, and Thompson said he was told by Utah’s athletic director that the university had not been contacted by the Pac-10.
Here's the rest of the AP story:
Thompson was attending a meeting of conference commissioners in Northern California today. Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott was not in attendance.
Thompson says Scott has not contacted him since the Pac-10’s invitation to Texas was declined Monday. The Pac-10 was hoping to add the Longhorns and four other Big 12 schools to form a 16-team conference.
Never miss a local story.
But Texas and the rest decided to stay put. The Pac-10 is one member short of the 12 it needs to hold a football championship game.Utah has been speculated as being the Pac-10’s next target.
