The Utah Utes will accept an invitation to join the Pac-10 on Thursday, various sources have reported.
The addition of Utah will make the Pac-10 a 12-team conference. Colorado accepted an invitation last week, and both schools will join for the 2012 season, but possibly for the 2011 season.
The Utes have been a member of the Mountain West Conference since 1999. They won the conference title in 1999, 2003, 2004 and 2008.
