Easiest and most difficult schedule per conference
Most Difficult: Tulsa (No. 66 in the FBS)
Easiest: Memphis (No. 119 in the FBS)
Gap in Difficulty: 53
Tulsa is set to play road games at Texas and at Arkansas this season. No small task for a team that hasn’t beaten a Power opponent since downing Iowa State in the 2012 Liberty Bowl. From across the American in the East division, it draws USF, a legitimate contender for the conference championship.
As for Memphis, only 11 FBS programs have an easier schedule than the Tigers do in 2018. They play FCS Mercer, Georgia State, South Alabama and at Missouri out of conference. Though they do draw top-dog UCF from the East division, it’s balanced with East Carolina, which has won just six games total over the last two seasons.
