    Brian,

    correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t believe there are any other teams in the six BCS conferences who have all of their non-conference opponents ranked in the pre-season top 25.

    Washington I know plays #4 Okla and #17 BYU, along with unranked ND.

    There are 8 teams that ucla has to play that are rated in the top-35 (including 5 in the Pac-10). This is a daunting schedule for this new coaching regime.
