Utah Informs Mountain West Of Imminent Departure, Per Rivals

This works a lot like math at this point: now that the Big 12 has survived in one form or another, the Pac-10 can now move to Plan B, the acquisition of the Utah Utes in its expansion to 12 teams. Order of operations is important here: with the Big Expansion scuttled, the Little Expansion is now underway.

That appears to be the case, if Rivals’ Utah site is to be believed. They are reporting that Utah has informed the Mountain West that they are leaving the conference and accepting a membership bid from the Pac-10.
