Toughest November schedule: Texas A&M finishes at Georgia and at LSU. Georgia plays Florida, Missouri, at Auburn, Texas A&M and at Georgia Tech — with Missouri and Auburn both having an open-date advantage. Maryland plays Michigan, at Ohio State, Nebraska, at Michigan State. Baylor plays at TCU, Oklahoma, Texas and at Kansas. Notre Dame plays its pileup of games against teams coming off open dates (see above) and then finishes at Stanford.
Team going nowhere: Georgia plays every game in Athens, Atlanta or a neighboring state, with out-of-state trips only to Vanderbilt (roughly 300 miles), Tennessee (235 miles), Jacksonville (340 miles) and Auburn (175 miles).
By the way, if you think Georgia’s got it rough playing teams coming off open weeks on the schedule, check out Notre Dame’s November.
