The Pac-12 didn’t do UCLA any favors with the 2013 schedule.
The Bruins have back-to-back road games against the conference’s top two teams, Stanford and Oregon. They also have difficult road games at Nebraska (Sept. 14) and USC (Nov. 30).
The Bruins go to Palo Alto on Oct. 19 to play Stanford, which won the Pac-12 and the Rose Bowl this season. The Cardinal finished seventh in the Associated Press poll.
The following week, UCLA travels to Eugene to play Oregon, which won the Fiesta Bowl and finished second nationally. The Ducks' only loss was to Stanford.
