here's how it's going to work schedule wise (on average).....

for non-divisional games (within conference):
1) Arizona will play
a) Stanford, California: every other year (0.5/yr)
b) Washington, Wazzu, Oregon, ntOSU: 3x in a 4-yr span (0.75/yr)
* ditto Arizona's schedule for ASu, Utah, Colorado
2) Washington will play
a) USC, UCLA: every other year (0.5/yr)
b) Arizona, ASu, Utah, Colorado: 3x in a 4-yr span (0.75/yr)
* ditto Washington's schedule for Wazzu, Oregon, ntOSU
3) USC will play
a) Stanford, Cal: every year (1.0/yr)
b) Washington, Wazzu, Oregon, ntOSU: every other year (0.5/yr)
* ditto USC's schedule for UCLA
4) Cal will play
a) USC, UCLA: every year (1.0/yr)
b) Arizona, ASu, Utah, Colorado: every other year (0.5/yr)
* ditto Cal's schedule for Stanford.
this is mathematically how it has to work in order to be fair to all schools. there's symmetry in how it works for the Pacific NW schools vs. Arizona/Mountain schools. and symmetry with USC/UCLA vs. Stanford/Cal. for ease of scheduling, all schools will likely stick to the strict scheduling above.
what does this mean?
* Arizona plays one Bay Area team per year and plays every other year in the Bay area. in other words, Arizona does not play either Stanford or Cal each year.
* Arizona plays 3 of the 4 Pacific NW schools each year. in other words, Arizona misses 1 Pacific NW school each year (on a rotating basis).
* Arizona plays one LA school in LA and one in Tucson each year. (same as current setup; see the last 4 years)
