Yeah, I know it's difficult to look all the way to 2011 on the eve of the Big Game™. However, Utah's schedule for next season has been finalized.
Which is a weird feeling because in the Mountain West, that generally happens in early spring - not early fall!
But anyway, Utah's 2011 schedule:
September 1st: Montana (Thursday)
September 10th: @ USC
September 17th: @ BYU
October 1st: Washington
October 8th: Arizona State
October 15th: @ Pittsburgh
October 22nd: @ California
October 29th: Oregon State
November 5th: @ Arizona
November 12th: UCLA
November 19th: @ Washington State
November 26th: Colorado
Conference games in bold.
So, what do you think? Wish the bye was later in the season.
Utah misses out on playing Oregon, but opens conference play at SC. The home schedule is pretty good with Washington, Arizona State, Oregon State and UCLA. However, playing Arizona, who the Utes could be battling for the South Division, on the road should prove to be extremely difficult.
Of course, times and channels are TBD.
