Antitrust and access will be part of the agenda this week when Bowl Championship Series commissioners gather in Pasadena. The annual spring meetings are being held here in conjunction with the Rose Bowl's staging this season's BCS title game, but are not expected to produce major headlines. Last spring, at meetings in Florida, BCS officials rejected a modified "plus-one" playoff proposal introduced by the Southeastern Conference.
Last season's controversy involving Utah, however, has stirred more BCS backlash. Utah finished as major college football's only undefeated team but failed to qualify for the BCS championship game after finishing No. 6 in the final standings. Oklahoma and Florida ended up No. 1 and No. 2, with Florida claiming the BCS title with a win at Dolphin Stadium. Utah beat Alabama in the Sugar Bowl and finished 13-0 and No. 2 in the final Associated Press poll.
