Making The Rounds: Playoffs, Recruiting, A Look At 2012 Opponents

Top 10: The easiest nonconference schedules of 2012 -
7. Colorado State: The Rams open with arch-rival CU, which is still in rebuilding mode, before getting a visit from FCS power North Dakota State. A Week Three trip to an improved San Jose State team should be tough as could a visit from a Utah State squad that just went 7-6.

9. UNLV: Facing teams from the Big Ten and the Pac-12 sounds hefty but keep in mind those teams are Minnesota (6-18 the past two seasons) and Washington State (9-40 the past four years). And both of those games are in Vegas, as is the game in between those two, against NAU. In Week Five, the Rebels visit a decent Utah State team.
