Go figure — ESPN suddenly loves MWC

For the third time in four weeks, ESPN's "College GameDay" will originate from a Mountain West Conference site — Fort Worth, where No. 16 Utah will visit No. 4 TCU.

Last week, "GameDay" (Saturday, 8 a.m.) was in Colorado Springs for the Air Force-Army game. Two weeks before that, it was in Provo for the TCU-BYU game.

TCU-BYU was the only matchup between ranked teams that Saturday. Utah-TCU is not the only such matchup this Saturday. No. 10 Iowa visits No. 11 Ohio State. And that game's on ESPN's sister network, ABC.
