The Utes look as if they are "IN" and will become the first coalition school to crash the BCS party. However, they may not be the only one? I'm sure the BCS doesn't mind all the publicity surrounding Utah's once-in-a-lifetime season but if Texas loses at home this Friday to Texas A&M, the possibility exists that either Boise State or even Louisville could move up into that coveted sixth spot by the time the final BCS standings are released.

Speaking of the Rose Bowl, what happens if either Cal loses to Southern Miss, or somehow either Boise St or Louisville reaches number six in the BCS' final standings?....Think the Rose Bowl committee is looking forward to choosing Michigan's opponent from
