Pac-12 2023 Football Opponents


While we await the dates for the conference games in 2023, here is a look at who plays who in the Pac-12 next season.


Home games: Northern Arizona (9/2), UTEP (9/16), Oregon State, UCLA, Utah, Washington

Away games: Mississippi State (9/9), Arizona State, Colorado, Stanford, USC, WSU

Comments: Four of their toughest games will be at home, and a tough road trip to Mississippi State.

Arizona State

Home games: Southern Utah (8/31), Oklahoma State (9/9), Fresno State (9/16), Arizona, Colorado, Oregon, USC, WSU

Away games: California, UCLA, Utah, Washington

Comments: The Sun Devils get 8 home games, but should have 3 tough away games.


Home games: Auburn (9/9), Idaho (9/16), Arizona State, Oregon State, USC, WSU

Away games: North Texas (9/2), Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, Utah, Washington

Comments: The Bears have four tough road games and play one of two SEC teams that are travelling out West this year.


Home games: Nebraska (9/9), Colorado State (9/16), Arizona, Oregon State, Stanford, USC

Away games: TCU (9/2), Arizona State, Oregon, UCLA, Utah, WSU

Comments: Despite what Coach Sanders mentioned during the national championship game, it doesn't appear that they will be playing Arizona State in week 0, that means that Colorado's first game under Sanders will be at TCU.


Home games: Portland State (9/2), Hawaii (9/16), California, Oregon State, USC, WSU

Away games: Texas Tech (9/9), Arizona State, Stanford, Utah, Washington

Comments: Away game against Texas Tech will not be easy, nor will the games at Utah and at UW. Only one real marquee home game (besides the Oregon State game), but it should be a big one against USC.

Oregon State

Home games: UC Davis (9/9), San Diego State (9/16), Stanford, UCLA, Utah, Washington

Away games: San Jose State (9/2), Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon, WSU

Comments: The Beavers look to have most of their toughest games at home, and their non-conference schedule looks like one of the easiest of all of the Pac-12 schools.


Home games: Sacramento State (9/16), Notre Dame (11/25), Arizona, California, Oregon, UCLA, Washington

Away games: Hawaii (9/1), Colorado, Oregon State, USC, WSU

Comments: The Sacramento State game could have been tricky given how good Sacramento State was last year and how bad Stanford was-except that Stanford now has Sacramento State's head coach.


Home games: Coastal Carolina (9/2), NC Central (9/16), Arizona State, California, Colorado, WSU

Away games: San Diego State (9/9), Arizona, Oregon State, Stanford, USC, Utah

Comments: Another easy non-conference schedule for the Bruins, but their road schedule in the Pac-12 will be difficult.


Home games: San Jose State (8/26), Nevada (9/2), Arizona, Stanford, UCLA, Utah, Washington

Away games: Notre Dame (10/14), Arizona State, California, Colorado, Oregon

Comments: Three of their toughest games should be at home and two on the road.


Home games: Florida (9/2), Weber State (9/16), Arizona State, California, Oregon, UCLA

Away games: Baylor (9/9), Arizona, Oregon State, USC, Washington

Comments: Utah plays 2 Power-5 teams in non-conference games, including the other SEC team to make a trip out West.


Home games: Boise State (9/2), Tulsa (9/9), Arizona State, California, Oregon, Utah, WSU

Away games: Michigan State (9/16), Arizona, Oregon State, Stanford, USC

Comments: Tricky non-conference schedule and a couple of other tough road games.

Washington State

Home games: Wisconsin (9/9), Northern Colorado (9/16), Arizona, Colorado, Oregon State, Stanford

Away games: Colorado State (9/2), Arizona State, California, Oregon, UCLA, Washington

Comments: Most of their toughest games will be on the road. The home game against Wisconsin was originally scheduled for 2015, and I believe that this is the first Power-5 opponent to play in Pullman in over a decade.
