Clemson's schedule ranked 2nd toughest in ACC

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 Thursday ranking the football schedules in the ACC with Clemson as the second toughest behind only Florida State.

"Auburn is a bit of a wild card to begin with, and the fact that it’s at Jordan-Hare makes it even trickier," Athlon Sports said about Clemson's schedule. "Another potential pitfall is the Thursday night road game at Georgia Tech, both because every Thursday night road game breeds upsets and the Yellow Jackets’ offense isn’t easy to prep for on a short week. Louisville has to come to Death Valley before things become more manageable. A carefully placed bye week offsets the fact that the Tigers travel to Tallahassee this season, after which Clemson should be heavily favored in every game on the schedule."

The schedules in the ACC from toughest to easiest were Florida State, Clemson, Pittsburgh, North Carolina, Louisville, Georgia Tech, North Carolina State, Virginia Tech, Miami, Syracuse, Duke, Virginia, Boston College and Wake Forest.
