Clemson ranked in ESPN's toughest non-conference 2017 schedules

by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson won their first National Championship since 1981 but the Spring Game and first regular season game for 2017 will be here before you know it.

ESPN released their 10 teams with the toughest non-conference schedules for 2017 and Clemson was included at #10 overall.

"The Auburn game on the Plains was a tight one a year ago, and the scene shifts to Death Valley in 2017," ESPN's Chris Low sadi. "Ranked No. 11 in the Way-Too-Early Top 25, Auburn should have even more firepower on offense with quarterback newcomer Jarrett Stidham and will once again be a load on defense. South Carolina has also upgraded its talent level under Will Muschamp, making that trip to face the rival Gamecocks even more dangerous for the Tigers, who've lost three of their last four games in Columbia."

The teams with the toughest non-conference schedules according to ESPN were Pittsburgh, Florida, Florida State, Texas, USC, Georgia, Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Oklahoma State, and Clemson.

Clemson kicks off the 2017 regular season with a home contest against Kent State on September 2.
