This might have to evolve into a series so we can do some side-by-sides. Maybe.
Missing data (read: can anyone fill in the blanks?): 1)Cal's OOC slate (we know they host Tennessee, but the rest is unannounced) UPDATED 2)Oregon State's OOC slate (they've announced a home game against Utah but also two open dates, similar to Auburn) UPDATED
Final Count: 30 out-of-conference (OOC) games for all Pac-10 teams in 2007 (remember that the league went to a round-robin format last year, adding a conference game and holding at 3 OOC's per team).
Of those 30, we have 20 home games (.667) one neutral game and nine road games (.300).
Games against BCS conference opponents (and Notre Dame): 10/30 (.333)
Of those games against BCS conference opponents, five are at home (.500) and five are on the road (.500).
The Pac-10 has lined up just one (.036) out-of-conference game against teams that aren't in D-IA.
The Pac-10's softer part of the schedule remains superior to the host of gimmes against the Sun Belt the SEC compiled. If I had to call for some outright gimme's they would be matchups against Idaho (twice), New Mexico (twice), San Diego State, Colorado State, LaTech, UNLV and non D-IA creampuff NAU. That's 9 of the 30 announced OOC games (.300).
Opponents by conference:
ACC - 0 (!!!)
Big East - 1 (Syracuse)
Big 12 - 2 (Colorado, Nebraska)
Big Ten - 3 (Michigan, Ohio State, Wisconsin)
SEC - 1 (Tennessee)
Independents - 3 (Notre Dame x 3)
Mountain West - 11 (BYU x 2, SDSU x 2, Utah x 2, New Mexico x 2, TCU, Colorado State, UNLV)
WAC - 7 (San Jose State x 2, Idaho x 2, Boise State, Fresno State, Louisiana Tech)
Conference USA - 1 (Houston)
Sun Belt - 0
Games I like:
Arizona State/Colorado, Cal/Tennessee, Oregon/Houston, Oregon/Michigan, Stanford/TCU, UCLA/Notre Dame, USC/Nebraska, USC/Notre Dame, Washington/Boise State, Washington/Ohio State, Washington State/Wisconsin.
Per usual, I'll add the actual OOC schedules below in my first comment/reply to this entry.
