    The 5 worst bye weeks in college football in 2017

    Should have been 6 because Kansas State has the same open date as TTU in the Big 12. Interesting that 3 of the 5(6) are Pac-12. Furthermore, 2 of the next P5 with the worst are Cal and Oregon who play 10 straight games before having a bye on 11/11. No team in the SEC nor the Big 10 has a bye in November. The latest in the ACC is 11/4.


    "Of the 128 FBS head coaches who led their team into the 2016 season, 83 (65 percent) had a career winning record coming off a bye. It makes a statistical case for the widely-held belief that teams benefit from a week off.

    What’s often overlooked is the timing of the break. Ideally, the open date is scheduled for after the halfway point of the season, but not too late to prove ineffectual.

    The following programs will play the upcoming season handicapped with a way-too-early or way-too-late bye. In one case, it’s so extreme that the team will technically play the entire regular season without a break.

    It’s yet another under-the-radar caveat of scheduling."

    Big 12 is the dumpster fire of scheduling this season because of implementing the CG. OOC schedules could not be changed so they had to slot the conference games anywhere they could without the extra week in which to do so. IMO, it was really stupid of them to retain the complete round robin schedule rather than go to divisions.

    I'm surprised no B1G teams on this list. This year, Michigan State has a Week 3 bye after playing Bowling Green and Western Michigan at home. Their next several games are... vs. ND, Iowa, at Michigan and Minnesota... ouch! Ohio State has a Week 2 bye after playing Indiana on the opening Thursday... ouch!

    All 5(6) play 11 or more games before or after a bye. She obviously was looking for quantity of games and not quality of opponents. More than 5(6) play 10 straight games including Michigan State plus the aforementioned Cal and Oregon.

    Not quite sure where you saw the tOSU schedule but it is not correct if it has a Week 2 bye. tOSU plays Oklahoma in Week 2 and their bye is in Week 8.
