Pac-12 releases 2015 schedule


When is the perfect time to release a football schedule?

If you answered 10 p.m. ET on a random Tuesday in September, you may have a job at the Pac-12 Conference waiting for you.

The league released its 2015 slate on Tuesday and, though it may seem weird to release a schedule in the midst of the 2014 season, it's not too far ahead. I believe you can find a Big Ten conference schedule for 2037 floating around on the Internet somewhere.

The Pac-12 boasts that nearly a third of its non-conference games are against Power Five opponents, including against the likes of Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Texas and Texas A&M (and Rutgers!). Although the league's end-of-season alliance has created a wonky end to the 2015 slate: since Stanford hosts Notre Dame on the Saturday after Thanksgiving in odd numbered years, California closes the regular season at home against Arizona State, which in turn means Arizona has to end its regular season on Nov. 21. Awkward.

Anyway, here are some dates to remember for the 2015 Pac-12 season:

Sept. 3 - Michigan at Utah

Sept. 5 - Arizona State vs. Texas A&M (at NRG Stadium, Houston)
Virginia at UCLA
Washington at Boise State - AKA the game Chris Petersen desperately wants to cancel
Stanford at Northwestern

Sept. 12 - Oregon at Michigan State
Oregon State at Michigan
Washington State at Rutgers
Central Florida at Stanford

Sept. 19 - Stanford at USC
California at Texas

Oct. 8 - Washington at USC - Sark's first game against Washington

Oct. 15 - UCLA at Stanford

Oct. 17 - USC at Notre Dame

Nov. 14 - Oregon at Stanford

Nov. 21 - USC at Oregon
Arizona at Arizona State
California at Stanford

Nov. 27 - Oregon State at Oregon
Washington State at Washington

Nov. 28 - UCLA at USC
Notre Dame at Stanford

Dec. 4 - Pac-12 Championship (at Levi's Stadium, Santa Clara, Calif.)
