The Arizona Wildcats will be considered one of the best teams in college basketball to tip off the 2013-14 season. However, what is the toughest non-conference schedule game for them?

Out of all of the games actually scheduled, the game against Michigan will be by far the toughest.

The Wolverines made the national championship game last season and they will be a top 10 team once again. Mitch McGary and co. will challenge for a Big Ten title and they will be one of the best teams in college hoops all season long.

There is also a chance that Arizona will have to play the Duke Blue Devils. If that is in fact the case, then what a treat we are in for. The Blue Devils, like the Wildcats and Wolverines, will be a top 10 team.

Arizona will also have to play two MWC teams in San Diego State and UNLV. Those two teams will compete for a conference title and will not be easy to beat.

As you can see, the Wildcats will have their hands full before Pac-12 play begins. Speaking of which, Arizona will be the favorite to win a conference title and is clearly the best team on paper. That is probably not what Colorado and UCLA fans wanted to hear, but Arizona is stacked for the upcoming season.

The winner of the Michigan vs. Arizona game will have some serious bragging rights and could lead to a No. 1 ranking in college hoops. Even better, it could eventually lead to a No. 1 seed in the Big Dance.
