FORT WORTH (AP) – The biggest game of all between BCS-busting rivals TCU and Utah will be their last one as conference foes.
Third-ranked TCU goes to fifth-ranked Utah on Saturday for the Mountain West Conference’s first-ever matchup of Top 10 teams.
The winner takes a big step toward the Mountain West title and remains in contention for another Bowl Championship Series game — maybe even the national title game.
It will end a short but intense conference rivalry that began in 2005.
Utah, the original BCS buster, is moving next season to the new Pac-12.
Since a 13-10 loss at Utah two years ago, TCU has won 22 consecutive regular-season games. The Frogs won 55-28 last year.
