I see talking about the schedule is a contentious topic so I'll wade in carefully here.
But with the final polls out, worth noting that the Huskies played six of the final AP Top 25 --- USC (3), Ohio State (5), Arizona State (15), Hawaii (19), Oregon (23) and Oregon State (25).
And next year's schedule doesn't loom a whole lot easier as the same number of teams, six, in the final poll are on the schedule for next year --- USC, Oklahoma (8), BYU (14), Arizona State, Oregon and Oregon State.
Obviously a lot of those teams will look a lot different next season. But of the non-conference teams mentioned there, Oklahoma and BYU are expected to again be poll-worthy with the Sooner s getting some early talk as a potential national titlest. In his look ahead to next season, SI.com's Stewart Mandel has Oklahoma at No. 3. He also has USC at No. 4.
