After many other major college basketball programs released their 2015-2016, today BYU finally released theirs, including their full WCC slate. While a few of the highlights of BYU's out of conference games were already known, like their participation in the Diamond Head Classic in Hawaii (where they will start against Harvard), the full slate adds a few potentially interesting games as well.

The Cougars face Pac-12 squads Utah and Colorado on the road this season, and could potentially see Auburn in Hawaii. BYU also faces Weber State on a neutral floor, leading to a home schedule that is a little light on big names, but still has a few interesting games, like Belmont and Central Michigan, two mid-majors who could compete for NCAA bids. And for those looking for an inside look at how the schedules are made up, and maybe why Adams State is on the schedule, take a look at this in-depth look at BYU scheduling by Steve Pierce.
