Utah takes a step forward to Pac-10

Utah's Board of Trustees will hold a public meeting Thursday at 2:30 p.m. ET at Rice-Eccles Stadium, according to Lya Wodraska's blog for the Salt Lake Tribune.

Writes Wodraska: "Utah's Board of Trustees is expected to approve a departure from the [Mountain West Conference] to the Pac-10."

Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott has not returned a text message from the Pac-10 blog to confirm, but it appears that things are moving forward as expected.
