Colorado now knows which teams they will face in the first season of the Pac 12.
Colorado received its schedule from the conference, and the Buffs will take on two teams in the current top 15 at home, including the current No. 1 Oregon Ducks in Boulder in 2011.
The Buffs are also slated to host traditional Pac-10 powerhouses the USC Trojans in Boulder.
The Buffs will travel to Hawaii to open the season on Sept. 3. The opponent for the home opener on Sept. 10 has yet to be determined.
Oregon will come to Folsom Field Oct. 22 for family weekend.
Other top programs the Buffs will face include Big Ten contender Ohio State and new conference rivals Arizona, currently ranked 15th in the BCS and Utah.
