Ranking college football's toughest schedules for the 2022 season

Playing a quality schedule is more important now than ever before, with good competition now a major factor the College Football Playoff selection committee uses to gauge whether a team belongs in the Top 25.

But good competition isn't spread out evenly across the sport. Most of it still resides in the SEC, where the weekly slug fest has produced 12 of the last 16 national championship teams.

It's not a surprise, then, that most of the hardest schedules hail from that league, but you can find some quality teams in the Big Ten this fall, too. Which teams will have the toughest time in the 2022 season.

Scroll through to see the hardest schedules in college football this year, accounting for opponent, potential ranking, time of year, location, and other factors.
