That’s up to 4 ranked opponents on the non-conference slate.  Strong OOC indeed.  Three neutral court and 1 true road game.  With CU’s habit of strong early starts, this schedule offers opportunities for an early season rise in the rankings, increasing viewership and respect for the team, and permanently ingraining the brand into poll voters heads.

The Oklahoma game was a previously scheduled return game of a H&H, now part of the inaugural BE/B12 Challenge.   I will update as more dates are established for this slate.
