The Pac-12 Conference released the 2017 football schedule this morning. UCLA opens the season in the Rose Bowl against Texas A&M, before two more non-conference games against Hawaii and at Memphis.

The Bruins begin conference play again against the Stanford Cardinal, but this year in Palo Alto.

Here’s the schedule in full:

After going 4-8 in 2016 with an abysmal offense, head coach Jim Mora’s seat is going to be hot, and the scheduling gods haven’t made it very easy for him. The Aggies beat the Bruins in the season opener last year, a trip to Memphis won’t be easy, and all three of the toughest Pac-12 opponents the Bruins play will be road games (at Stanford, at Washington, Across Town).

UCLA will have two short weeks leading into Friday night games, with a trip to conference champion Washington followed only six days later by a trip to Salt Lake City—yikes. Then only six days after rivalry week to prepare to host UC Berkeley—a game the team was pretty uninterested in playing in 2016.

Josh Rosen will return to the starting QB job, with new offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch calling the plays and a re-tooled offensive staff.

What do you think, BN?
