SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -Utah's state legislature is calling for a playoff system to determine college football's national champion.
With University of Utah football players on hand, the state senate adopted a resolution Monday it wants sent to President Barack Obama urging the NCAA to abandon the Bowl Championship Series in favor of a playoff system.
Utah's political leaders - including those who went to archrival Brigham Young University - are upset an undefeated Utah team was shut out of the BCS national championship game.
Utah finished its perfect season with a No. 2 ranking in the final Associated Press poll.
State lawmakers say the BCS is too close to a monopoly and prevents schools like Utah from having a chance to play for the national title.
