2012 Pac-12 Football Schedule: Arizona Wildcats Face Oklahoma State Cowboys

Rich Rodriguez should be able to make a soft landing in the conference. With a few notable exceptions, the Arizona Wildcats should have plenty of winnable contests next season. And more importantly, Arizona will have eight home games, which has to be a huge advantage considering how rowdy crowds in Tucson get when the chips are down.

Arizona starts with three non-conference games, all three at home. Toledo on September 1st and South Carolina State on September 15th are not tough ones, but the Oklahoma St. Cowboys come to town on September 8th and figure to give Arizona a very stiff test, even when replacing Justin Blackmon.

Things don't get much tougher out-of-conference. Arizona goes to Oregon, which is probably an automatic loss, and also has road dates to Utah, UCLA and Stanford, but they will have home games with Oregon State, USC, Washington, Arizona State, and Colorado. Arizona probably has one of the easiest and most standard college football schedules in the Pac-12 as Rodriguez could potentially bring the Wildcats back to respectability.
