The Clemson football team will take on Ohio State in the CFB Playoff. Here are four reasons the Tigers would love a Big Ten schedule.

Throughout the entire 2019 season, we heard analyst after analyst talk about the Clemson football schedule.

The Tigers didn’t measure up well when you look at strength of schedule and it’s very clear that the ACC was down immensely from where it has been in the past.

However, it’s a bit ironic that Clemson football will matchup with Ohio State in the first round of the CFB Playoff.

For the entirety of the season, we’ve had to hear about how the Buckeyes were the ‘most complete team in College Football.’ According to many analysts, Ohio State faced a gauntlet of a schedule with powerful Big Ten teams like Penn State, Michigan and Wisconsin, all of which are fairly highly-rated.

While there’s no doubting that the Buckeyes may have played a bit more difficult schedule compared to Clemson, the bias in favor of the Big Ten was absolutely deafening throughout this season and, honestly, unwarranted.

Here are four reasons Clemson football would excel greatly with a Big Ten schedule, maybe even more so than in the ACC.
