A gamut of topics were discussed Tuesday when BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe met with some members of the media, chief among them being the long-term outlook of independence and scheduling Utah in football. Here is a rundown of what was covered.

He also said BYU plans on being in a power-5 conference in the near future.

He also addressed specifics regarding ND-ACC type agreements and football-only membership:
