Washington opens the Pac-12 season in the Bay Area with games 6 p.m. Friday Jan. 2 at California and 8 p.m. Sunday Jan. 4 at Stanford.

The Huskies conference home opener is noon Saturday Jan. 10 against cross-state rival Washington State. UW plays at WSU 5:30 p.m. Sunday Feb. 22.

Perhaps the biggest game on the conference schedule is a 6 p.m. Friday Feb. 13 matchup against Arizona at Alaska Airlines Arena that will be televised by ESPN.

Washington returns to southern California for games at UCLA (8 p.m. Wednesday Feb. 25) and USC (7 p.m. Saturday Feb. 28) after missing the Los Angeles road trip last season.

At first glance, it’s a fair conference schedule. Washington plays five home games in the first half of the league schedule and four in the second half, including a regular-season final week against Colorado (6 p.m. Thursday, March 5) and Utah (1:30 p.m. Saturday March 7).

However, the Huskies may quibble about three Wednesday games (Jan. 28 vs. Stanford, Feb. 4 at Oregon and Feb. 25 at UCLA) that follow Sunday contests. Pac-12 coaches have complained the 72-hour window between games is a short turnaround that doesn’t provide enough time to prepare to for a game because of travel constraints and off days for players.

Due to the unbalanced schedule, Washington will not play at Arizona and Arizona State. The Huskies also will not host UCLA and USC.

Highlights of the nonconference schedule include a 6 p.m. Sunday Dec. 7 home game against San Diego State and a 6 p.m. Saturday Dec. 20 date with Oklahoma in the MGM Showcase in Las Vegas. The Huskies also fly to Anaheim, Calif. for three games (Nov. 27-30) in the eight-team Wooden Legacy that could produce a title matchup against UTEP or Princeton.

The Huskies make 14 appearancesĀ  on the Pac-12 Networks, 12 on one of the ESPN channels and three on Fox Sports Net. There’s no TV information at the moment about the Nov. 21 game against Seattle or the Nov. 23 game versus Pacific.

There are no conflicts with Washington football games.
