Last week Alabama played Mercer, Georgia played UAB, Oklahoma played Western Carolina, and Clemson played SC State. Combined score of the ranked teams over inferior opponents was 229 - 24. Welcome to nonconference scheduled for college football. Sure you will have some non conference games against ranked opponents. But most of the time its cupcakes. Games like these should always be scheduled. Not only is it pretty much a guaranteed win against an FCS school (whick matters come playoff selection time) but it gives coaches a chance to rest starters and play 2nd and 3rd string guys. Literally a win win!!
