The Colorado Buffaloes have officially released the men's schedule for the 2012-2013 basketball season and it doesn't look much different than last year from a strength standpoint. Colorado's non-conference schedule is a little harder, but they aren't going to get any praise for it come Selection Sunday. The home opener is against Wofford and then they'll travel to the Charleston Classic, a good change from last year instead of being in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. They'll open up the tournament against Dayton, who will be a tough test to start the season. If they can beat Dayton, a potential NCAA rematch with Baylor looms. This tournament will be a great measuring stick for the team to see what their strengths and weaknesses are.

After that, their non-conference schedule consists of home games against Colorado State, Air Force, Texas Southern, Northern Arizona, and Hartford. On the road, it's much tougher with Kansas, Fresno State, and Wyoming. Colorado should win all of their home non-conference games, and possibly take one out of the three road non-conference games. If they can do that, they'll be in good shape for Pac-12 play. Conference play doesn't make it any easier on the Buffs; they have a lot of difficult road games and not too many easy wins at home. The entire schedule is posted below...
