SALT LAKE CITY — The University of Utah hasn't even concluded its non-conference schedule, but the program already knows its future opponents for the 2015 season.

Tuesday night the Pac-12 released its football schedule for the 2015 football season. The season begins on Thursday, Sept. 3, with UTSA visiting Arizona and Michigan visiting Utah.

Utah has a favorable home schedule for the season, with several big names coming to town, including Michigan and UCLA. However, the road schedule includes Oregon, USC and Washington.

The Utes' non-conference schedule appears to get easier as it goes on, with Utah State coming to Salt Lake City the week after the Michigan game on Saturday, Sept. 12. The Utes then travel to Fresno to take on Fresno State in the back end of a home-and-home series with the Mountain West Conference team on Saturday, Sept. 19.

Utah opens up Pac-12 play on the road against Oregon on Saturday, Sept. 26, before getting its first bye week of the season. Following Utah's bye, California will come to Salt Lake City for the first time in two seasons.

Unlike this season where Utah will face USC, Oregon and Stanford in a four-week period, Utah's projected difficult games are evenly spaced out. Not playing Stanford in 2015 will also ease the burden of difficulty for Utah.

The conference announced that all games played at a Pac-12 site will be televised on either the Pac-12 Networks, ABC, FOX or FOX Sports 1.
