Everyone in the Pac-10, including the Bruins, has been looking forward to this day since Colorado and Utah accepted offers to join the conference last year. Both universities have established great traditions, both on the field of competition and in the classroom.
We have a tremendous conference that has enjoyed unmatched success across the board and the addition of these two schools only increases the prestige and exposure of the Pac-12 Conference. Colorado and Utah have outstanding athletic programs and have combined to win 42 NCAA team championships. I know that all of our coaches, student-athletes and fans are excited to compete with our new conference rivals and I'm sure that everyone associated with these two great universities is as well.
UCLA welcomes Colorado and Utah to the Pac-12 and we eagerly anticipate the conference's inaugural season this fall.
The Trojan family is very excited to welcome the fans, alumni, student-athletes, coaches, athletic staff and university personnel of Colorado and Utah to a fabulous conference, the Pac-12. Both Colorado and Utah are wonderful additions to our conference. They bring a rich athletic heritage to a conference that has won more national championships than any other and they have academic visions that are in line with all of our member institutions.
We realize that this now ramps up the competition level in the Pac-12. We look forward to it, as I know the Buffs and Utes do. It's going to be one fun journey!
"He's right on schedule and barring any setbacks he should be full-go for the season opener."

"I thought we might see an upset, but it wasn’t meant to be."
They deserved better. They were there in full force and very supportive. It was loud. Everything we hoped for from the fans we got. We just didn't deliver our end of the bargain.
There was a clear difference in speed on the football field. It clearly showed and was a big difference. Do I think Utah belongs in the top 10? Do I think they have the ability to compete against all the other teams in BCS conferences? Absolutely. They’re a very good, a very well-balanced football team.
Sitting on the team bus. Jake Heaps just threw a bottled water to each of our WR's...they all dropped it. Figures.
