Wildcats boast easiest non-conference football schedule

If the Arizona Wildcats struggle to win games in 2013, it probably won't be due to their out of conference slate.

According to CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman, Rich Rodriguez's team has the softest non-conference schedule in the land.

Year Two of the Rich Rod Era sees the Wildcats face two of their three non-conference opponents coming off eight-win seasons, but it's FCS Northern Arizona and Texas-San Antonio, which lost its other four games by at least 20. Arizona's other non-con game is on the road but it's at UNLV, which was 2-11 last season.

Last season, Arizona's non-conference schedule included Toledo, Oklahoma State and South Carolina State -- all at home, with Arizona winning all three games. Including Pac-12 play they faced five top-25 teams, and they went 2-3 in those contests.

Along with their three non-conference games, the Wildcats will also square off with Pac-12 foes Utah, UCLA, Washington State and Oregon at home, along with Washington, USC, Colorado, California and Arizona State on the road.
