Utah's Legislature has jumped into the BCS fray, calling for a playoff system to determine college football's national champion.

With University of Utah football players on hand, the Utah Senate adopted a resolution today that it wants sent to President Barack Obama -- urging the NCAA to abandon the Bowl Championship Series in favor of a playoff.

Utah's political leaders are frustrated with the BCS because they contend that schools from small conferences such as the Mountain West will never be allowed to play for the national title under the current system.

Utah finished 13-0 and was the only unbeaten team in the country, but finished No. 2 behind Florida in the AP Top 25.

In the final USA Today Coaches' poll, the Utes were fourth.
