Clemson's ACC schedule ranked 2nd toughest

by - Assoc. Editor -

It's never too early to look forward and dissect Clemson Football's schedule for the upcoming season.

Athlon Sports released its latest article on Monday ranking the football schedules in the ACC with Clemson as the second toughest behind only Florida State.

"The non-conference slate is highlighted by a home game against an Auburn team that should be much improved with the addition of JUCO/former Baylor quarterback Jarrett Stidham," Athlon said. "The Louisville game could have gone the other way last year and that's at Papa John's Stadium this time around. The Tigers also pulled one of the most difficult crossover assignments from the Atlantic in going to Blacksburg to face Virginia Tech."

The full ranking of toughest schedules in order was Florida State, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Boston College, Duke, Virginia, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Louisville, Virginia Tech, Miami and finally Wake Forest.
