In response to Conner Johnson (Readers' Forum, Dec. 27): I'm sure the Las Vegas Bowl was the most hard-fought game he had ever seen. I'm sure he and every other Brigham Young University fan loved every minute of such an exciting game. But don't ever say that the Las Vegas Bowl is a bowl championship. I don't care how much you love BYU, the Las Vegas Bowl is a meaningless bowl game. How can a game mean so much when the team you're facing went 6-6 and was fifth in the PAC 10?
