Red roundup: 'Utes most important team in college football'
Utah is considered the "most important team in college football" by the Tucson Citizen.
"The Utes went to (and won) two BCS bowl games as members of the Mountain West Conference," reads the article. "If they can do the same against a Pac-12 schedule it breaks down the final barrier for the so-called non-automatic qualifying conferences. It means Boise State can play for the national championship."
