SALT LAKE CITY – The Pac-10 is inviting the University of Utah to become the 12th member of the conference.

The Pac-10 extended an invitation Wednesday to Utah, which is currently in the Mountain West Conference. The move comes two days after being turned down by Texas, Oklahoma and three other Big 12 schools.

Utah officials did not immediately say whether the invitation would be accepted.



The school’s board of trustees will meet Thursday to discuss the school’s conference affiliation. A news conference was scheduled at the university’s football stadium following the board’s meeting.

Last week, Colorado already accepted an invitation to join the Pac-10.
