Ranking Clemson's five toughest opponents for 2018: Who made the cut?

Once the 2018 Clemson football schedule was released Wednesday afternoon, I took to Twitter to ask my followers the five toughest games on the Tigers’ schedule next season. What teams made the cut?

It just doesn’t hold water that “records go out the window” ... it seems to have been shown time and time again that talent generally wins out at a rate very similar to non rivalry games. Sorry chickens, never again

yeah really tough. Funny thing is, the games weren't as close as the score.

If Cooterville is in the top 5 of our opponents, I fear for our strength of schedule.

The fact that their schedule is weak and they may be ranked when they come to Death Valley is completely irrelevant and doesn't change the fact that they lack both the coaching and the talent to play four quarters with Clemson. Clemson wins another laugher.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

You had me until the Coots made the list. I opted for picking the shutouts.

5. @Wake
4. Furman
3. BC
2. @FSU
1. @A&M

wake is a good team that will have energy to compete at home
furman - shhhhhh! dont sleep its the opening game and its an FCS championship contender
BC is always slow and rugged
FSU in tally is always a tough game and likely motivation on their end to redeem last yr
A&M will be the toughest playing a coach that is familiar and a ruckus environment early in the season with uncertainty and youth on offense.

FSU? New HC whos records at previous schools weren't exactly stellar? Not an easy game but still won't be close to the FSU of old, at least this season.
