Hey, congrats to the Tigers!

Now, on to the next season, which, as you know, there is already a ranking:
https://www.espn.com/college-footbal...u-clemson-land

No explanation as to how this ranking is formed. Various ESPN writers, just this guy, Sagarin, whatev's.
I think it's just this guy.

Let's take a look at which teams have balls in their non-conference scheduling, shall we?
I see tOSU at Oregon 9/12.
Other OSU plays the Other Other OSU on 9/3
Neutral site games on Labor Day Weekend:
Alabama vs. Southern California at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Saturday, Sept. 5
Baylor vs. Ole Miss at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas on Saturday, Sept. 5
Florida State vs. West Virginia at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, Sept. 5
Georgia vs. Virginia at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia on Monday, Sept. 7

Atlanta is really working this thing. And Chick-fil-A will be open both days!

Michigan At Washington, 9/5.

Texas at LSU, 9/12

Georgia at Alabama 9/19! The rare conference game.

There are more, but the searching is manual labor.

Labor day weekend is always one of the more diverse weekends in downtown atlanta. You get tons of college football fans plus Dragon Con and Black Pride.

Badgers playing App St. in Madison and Notre Dame at Lambeau. Interesting if they get off to another start like they did in 2019.
