Ranking College Football’s 15 Most Difficult Schedules In 2017
15. Georgia Tech
Georgia Tech’s 2017 schedule is one of the most difficult in the nation. It’s fair to say that the Yellow Jackets have the second-toughest slate of any team in the conference:
Sept. 4 – Tennessee (neutral in Atlanta)
Sept. 9 – Jacksonville State
Sept. 16 – at UCF
Sept. 23 – Pitt
Sept. 30 – North Carolina
Oct. 12 – at Miami
Oct. 21 – Wake Forest
Oct. 28 – at Clemson
Nov. 4 – at Virginia
Nov. 11 – Virginia Tech
Nov. 18 – at Duke
Nov. 25 – Georgia
Georgia Tech is always a sneaky-tough opponent, so don’t assume those SEC contests will be losses. A bowl game is definitely possible for this team.
