Mountain West could get BCS automatic bid
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) – BCS executive director Bill Hancock says the Mountain West Conference has performed so well the last two seasons that it could receive an automatic bid to the big money bowl games in the 2012 and ’13 seasons.
Hancock was hesitant to say the MWC, which has placed Utah and TCU in the BCS over the last two seasons, was on course to become the seventh automatic qualifying conference. But he did tell the conference commissioners and athletic directors gathered here this week for meetings that they should be aware of the strides the league has made toward earning an automatic bid.
