The Tigers will face six teams with a preseason ranking, including the top two squads in Southern California and UCLA on the road, and a pair of opponents currently receiving votes towards a spot in the top-20. The year will open with 18th-ranked Santa Clara on Friday, Sept. 13 at 6:30 p.m. live on ESPNU.
