Look at just a partial picture of a football schedule is an incomplete, and sometimes a fool's errand, because not having the dates of who is playing who in league play can alter the perception of league play. With the Mountain West football schedule set for 2014, now is good as any to look at the non-conference games.

Here is what the non-conference games break down to per team:

Air Force -- Nicholls State, at Georgia State, at Army, Navy

Boise State -- Mississippi (Atlanta), at Connecticut, BYU, Louisiana

Colorado State -- Colorado (Denver), UC Davis, at Boston College, Tulsa

Fresno State -- at USC, at Utah, Southern Utah, Nebraska

Hawaii -- Washington, Oregon State, at Rice, Northern Iowa, at Colorado

Nevada -- Southern Utah, Washington State, at Arizona, at BYU

New Mexico -- UTEP, Arizona State, at Texas-San Antonio, at New Mexico State

San Diego State -- Northern Arizona, at North Carolina, at Oregon State, Idaho

San Jose State -- North Dakota, at Auburn, at Minnesota, at Navy

Utah State -- at Tennessee, Idaho State, at Arkansas State, at BYU, Wake Forest

UNLV -- at Arizona, Northern Colorado, Northern Illinois, at BYU

Wyoming -- Montana, at Oregon, Florida Atlantic, at Michigan State

Here is how it breaks down by conference:

• Pac-12: 12
• FCS: 10
• Independent: 7
• Sun Belt: 5
• Conference USA: 5
• Big Ten: 3
