    At the end of the 2018 season, the nation’s top four teams were as follows:
    #1 Clemson (15-0, 9-0)
    #2 Alabama (14-1, 9-0)
    #3 Ohio State (13-1, 9-1)
    #4 Oklahoma (12-2, 9-1)

    The OOC slates these four schools will play in 2019 and my ranking of same are as follows:

    EXCELLENT: Clemson - A challenging slate of four FBS teams, including a rivalry game played on the road.
    8/29 Georgia Tech (7-6, 5-3)
    9/7 Texas A&M (9-4, 5-3)
    9/21 Charlotte (5-7, 4-4)
    9/30 @ South Carolina (7-6, 4-4)

    GOOD: Oklahoma – Two solid FBS matchups, with one on the road, bookending a middling FCS team.
    8/31 Houston (8-5, 5-3)
    9/7 South Dakota (FCS 4-7, 3-5)
    9/14 @ UCLA (3-9, 3-6)

    AVERAGE: Ohio State - One match of national interest, sandwiched between two without any and all three played at home.
    8/31 Florida Atlantic (5-7, 3-5)
    9/7 Cincinnati (11-2, 6-2)
    9/21 Miami (Ohio) (6-6, 6-2)

    POOR: Alabama – A good “neutral” site opener, followed by three lightweights at home, including a woeful FCS team.
    8/31 Duke (8-5, 3-5)
    9/7 New Mexico State (3-9)
    9/21 Southern Mississippi (6-5, 5-3)
    11/23 West Carolina (FCS 3-8, 1-7)

    Clemson - Georgia Tech is a conference game. On 11/2, Clemson plays Wofford, a big difference from Georgia Tech.

    Correct on both points! My bad! How could I miss Wofford?

    So out of 14 OOC games, those four teams will play maybe one team that could be ranked (TAMU...maybe Cincinnati or Duke). Pathetic. USC typically plays twice as many ranked teams each season as those four teams combined.
