Why do P5 teams schedule so many non P5 opponents?

So CU will open CSU, Texas State, N Co (FCS) at home (Rams @ Mile High is “home”). Games on P12N that national sports networks didn’t want. Might as well have a national blackout on first three buff games. Can make an argument that given geography PAC / WAC offers some interesting regional matches but N Co or Texas State? In addition to 5 Pac South teams will play 4 PAC north teams but not Oregon or Stanford this year. Why not? Does not playing two conference teams make the divisions more compelling vs having two more P5 teams on the schedule? Or with Rose Bowl tie in why not a home away rotation with B1G. Would make early season a lot more interesting and season tickets more compelling without the cost of payday home game scheduling. Bowls always try to get P5 Vs P5 even in lower tier games.

The economics of conference networks in an era of cord cutting is coming unwound. Larry just got us there first. Maybe instead of leading from behind he could schedule more must see games on P12N.
