2024 Strength of Schedule For All 134 FBS College Football Teams

    The college football season will be here before we know it, and we've updated our college football strength of schedule for the 2024 season.

    College football will be here before we know it, but it’s never too early to start anticipating the season ahead. For the first time, College Football Network has painstakingly gone through every team’s schedule — welcome Kennesaw State — and analyzed the toughest roads ahead for each FBS team.

    Introducing: The first-of-its-kind CFN Strength of Schedule for the 2024 season.

    College Football Strength of Schedule for 2024

    CFN’s exclusive strength of schedule metric was crafted carefully using as many resources as possible ahead of the 2024 season. Using a bevy of metrics such as returning production, roster projections, coaching staff, incoming talent, home-field advantage, and other factors, the CFN SOS analyzes which teams have the most difficult and easiest schedules this season.

    CFN’s strength of schedule metric included each team’s transfer portal classes, valued quarterbacks returning to their school, and continuation among the coaching staffs into the ranking.

    These factors all awarded schedule difficulty more heavily based on merit and projection, as opposed to looking back at results from last season, though those results were factored in moderately. They’ve also been updated following all the reports from spring practice, final transfer portal class numbers, and the most up-to-date roster and depth chart files we have on hand.

    Here’s how the teams now rank ahead of the 2024 season.
