Pac-12 Football Schedules: 2011 Conference Schedules Released

The Washington Huskies and Washington State Cougars have finalized their 2011 schedules and unveiled them to the world this morning. With the details of the Pac-12 hammered out, the conference leadership put together a scheduling model that fit the criteria agreed upon by the conference presidents. All four California schools are guaranteed games against each other every year, creating a rotational schedule for inter-divisional matchups between the other eight schools.

You can find the full rotational schedule for the next eight years here.

The Washington Huskies face a tough stretch of games in 2011, traveling to Southern California to take on the USC Trojans and visiting Salt Lake City to take on Pac-12 newcomer Utah. The Huskies also travel to Nebraska for the second leg of the home-and-home series that began this year in Montlake.

Here's the full Washington schedule for 2011.
