Every year we organize the schedule by difficulty, and it is sometimes a decent predictor of results. For example, Boston College went 5-1 in last year’s bottom six, winning all the bottom five, then winning #5 and #6 while losing the top four hardest games. The only major mistake? Calling Clemson and USC harder games than Florida State; we won’t do that again.

6. vs. Pittsburgh (September 5)
The Eagles and Panthers have not faced each other in football since the years where Tyler Palko was dropping F-bombs on national television, but their first meeting both as members of the Atlantic Coast Conference will come in the Eagles’ home opener on a Friday night.
Some are under the impression that Pitt could end up being good this season, despite the fact that they were picked sixth in the ACC Coastal’s preseason poll. To be fair, however, nobody truly has a clue what will happen in that crazy division, emphasized by the fact that all but one team received first-place votes.
The Eagles are underdogs to the Panthers right now to the tune of about nine points, which seems overly inflated. The game is winnable, but less so than the games examined yesterday.
