ESPN FPI Ranks Easiest Remaining Schedule Among Playoff Contenders

Here's who has the easiest remaining schedule.

According to ESPN's Football Power Index, the Nittany Lions are the playoff contender with the easiest remaining schedule.

  • Remaining SOS rank: No. 67
  • Chance to win out: 78.9 percent
  • Chance to win the Big Ten: 1.3 percent

This weekend's game at Michigan State could be difficult, but after that, it looks like three straight blowouts.
