The Colorado Buffaloes released on Monday the full men’s basketball schedule for the 2020-21 season. The schedule includes 7 non-conference games and 20 Pac-12 contests, the latter of which are not exactly determined.
The Buffs will kick-off the season in Manhattan, Kansas, where they will take on the South Dakota Coyotes on Nov. 25 and the Kansas State Wildcats on Nov. 27.
Colorado will play Arizona in Tucson (Dec. 2) and Washington State in Boulder (Dec. 5), both part of the Pac-12 schedule. It will be strange to be a conference game so early, but every Pac-12 team has two such games this season.
After that, the Buffs will host three non-conference opponents in Boulder. Those will all be local games against Colorado State (Dec. 8), Northern Colorado (Dec. 14) and Omaha (Dec. 16).
To round out non-conference play, the Buffs will head to Las Vegas, Nevada, to play the Washington Huskies (Dec. 20) and the Grand Canyon Antelopes (Dec. 22). That game against UW will be a non-conference game, just like CU’s game against Arizona State in November, 2019.
The full non-conference schedule goes as follows:
Nov. 25 — South Dakota (Manhattan, KS)
Nov. 27 — Kansas State (Manhattan, KS)
Dec. 2 — at Arizona
Dec. 5 — WASHINGTON STATE
Dec. 8 — COLORADO STATE
Dec. 14 — NORTHERN COLORADO
Dec. 16 — OMAHA
