The 12 Toughest Remaining Schedules In College Football

Texas A&M loses to Mississippi State.


We're coming up on the final few weeks of the regular season, and the conference and college football playoff races are heating up.

Using its Football Power Index (FPI), EPN has determined which 12 schools have the toughest remaining schedules.

Here's a look at how the FPI is calculated:

The Football Power Index (FPI) is a measure of team strength that is meant to be the best predictor of a team’s performance going forward for the rest of the season. FPI represents how many points above or below average a team is. Projected results are based on 10,000 simulations of the rest of the season using FPI, results to date, and the remaining schedule. Ratings and projections update daily.

According to ESPN, four Pac-12 schools have the roughest sledding. Three programs from the SEC and Big 12 also have their work cut out for them, as do a pair of ACC teams.
