2010 UCLA v Texas Non-Conference Surprise

Everyone living in the two westernmost time zones (Pacific and Mountain) are jacked up for the new and improved PAC-12.  The evolution of the conference under Larry Scott has provided recent, interesting discussion about divisions, TV contracts, and the conference championship.

However, the PAC-10 has always been known for its desire to face tough non-conference opponents while avoiding the multiple patsies who plague other AQ leagues.  The inception of the PAC-12 is no different.

Following, are the Top 10 PAC-12 non-conference games for the upcoming 2011 season.  Notice the majority of the games are on the road, making this coming year difficult for the PAC-12 to succeed among its peer conferences.  Also notice that September 17th is the measuring stick day for the PAC-12, as a number of key games in this list are that day.  Apologies to Cal and Washington State... you just don't have the most interesting non-conference schedule this year.
