I thought they would opt for exposure through helping the MWC get the BCS AQ status, but I was mistaken.
Seems like BYU and the LDS church are taking a huge gamble. The only big upside is potential revenue. With probable scheduling nuances and other issues, BYU's annual BCS chances are more diminished as an independent, and their chances of being picked up by the PAC-12, Big 12 or some other AQ conference are 50/50 at best.
Anyone want to propose a lottery in Utah again?
