So what does that mean for the
Last season, UCLA played Arizona, the Pac-12 champion, only once. This season, UCLA plays Utah, last season's regular season runner-up, once — at home at Pauley Pavilion.
It also avoids a double series with Colorado, Stanford and California, which just hauled in perhaps the strongest recruiting class in the Pac-12.
The final schedule is released closer to the season to accommodate television broadcast partners and ensure that all games are televised.
