ESPN Names College Football’s Toughest Remaining Schedule


Week 1 of the 2021 college football season is nearly in the books.

Sunday night, Notre Dame will take on Florida State. Monday evening, Ole Miss will face Louisville. The rest of the country has already played its Week 1 contests.

Which college football program has the toughest schedule moving forward?

According to ESPN’s Football Power Index, the toughest remaining schedule belongs to the Arkansas Razorbacks. Arkansas got off to a nice start this season, beating Rice, 38-17, to open their 2021 regular season.

The road gets much tougher from here, though.

Here’s what Arkansas has the rest of the way:

  • vs. Texas
  • vs. Georgia Southern
  • vs. Texas A&M
  • at Georgia
  • at Ole Miss
  • vs. Auburn
  • vs. Arkansas-Pine Bluff
  • vs. Mississippi State
  • at LSU
  • at Alabama
  • vs. Missouri

Well…good luck, Arkansas. That is an absolutely brutal college football schedule moving forward.
