Michigan State's 2017 schedule ranked toughest in college football

20 Juin, 2017, 17:42 | Author: Cyril Hebras

The over/under for Michigan State's win total was released at 6.5 when released in May, so Michigan State's football team is expected to progress back to the mean in 2017, but if it does, Fornelli writes, "it will have earned it".

Both the Spartans and Wolverines are ranked as having the most hard schedules in the nation by two different prominent publications.

The Spartans, who are coming off a 3-9 record and a tumultuous offseason in which several players have been kicked off the team for off-field issues, have the toughest schedule in the nation according to Tom Fornelli of CBS Sports. The 2018 class for Michigan State now ranks ninth in the Big Ten Conference and 34th in the country.

Also, five of Michigan State's Big Ten games will be on the road this season (it's the East's turn), and its cross-divisional draw avoids the West's heavyweights, but it still provides challenges in Iowa, Minnesota and Northwestern. The Spartans not only have to play Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State this season, but only Penn State will be coming to East Lansing.

Fornelli used a numbers-based system to compile his list.

However the beef has continued to build up, with issues like racism and revenge clouding the air between the two boxers. To Ward's credit, he bounced back in the seventh and, in a precursor to how the fight would end, went for the body.


Meanwhile, Bleacher Report says MI has the hardest schedule in the nation in a list that doesn't even include MSU. He noted that tends to favor the Big Ten because the schedule has nine conference games and no Big Ten team will play an FCS team this season.

"Taking the next step toward a College Football Playoff berth in 2017 won't be easy", reporter Greg Wallace writes.

That slate includes a huge season-opening tilt with Florida in Arlington, Texas before Air Force, which went 10-3 last season and Cincinnati come to Ann Arbor. "Michigan must travel to Big Ten champion Penn State on October 21 and finishes the season with a trip to Wisconsin and the annual rivalry clash with nemesis Ohio State on November 25".

Michigan State's schedule will not be much easier during the non-conference season.
