Wildcats boast easiest non-conference football schedule
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.
