Does a diluted Mountain West Conference, void of Utah and BYU, still have a chance of earning automatic qualifying status in the BCS? CBSSports.com examines the question. To offset the loss of the Utes (Pac-12) and Cougars (independence), the MWC added Boise State this season. However, the league will lose TCU (Big East) next year.
— According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, former Ute J.J. O'Brien is weighing offers from UNLV and San Diego State.
— New Colorado football coach Jon Embree talks about his first Pac-12 meetings. Utah coach Kyle Whittingham is mentioned.
— The San Jose Mercury News takes another look at Pac-12 football and predicts the Utes can finish as high as second or as low as fifth in the Southern Division.
— And finally, ESPN.com's "Hope and Concern" series profiled the Utes last week.
