We are just over three months away from the 2024 college football season kicking off and Virginia Tech will begin the season in Nashville, Tennessee against SEC foe Vanderbilt and will play their first four non-conference games before they start play in the new-look ACC.

This season, SMU, California, and Stanford join the conference and will look to battle with the top teams. Just how good the conference is going to be remains to be seen, but there is no doubt that with travel, things are going to look a lot different, as well as transfers that the conference got, mainly at quarterback. With that said, let's rank the schedules from least difficult to most difficult for the 2024 season.

445. ACC. . . . 17. team. . .

  • Syracuse 2024 schedule: vs. Ohio, vs. Georgia Tech, vs. Stanford, vs. Holy Cross, at UNLV, at North Carolina State, at Pittsburgh, vs. Virginia Tech, at Boston College, at California, vs. Connecticut, vs. Miami

This is a favorable schedule for the Orange with their first four games at home, and three of their four non-conference games at home, with their only trip being to UNLV, which will not be easy. The conference schedule toughest games against Virginia Tech and Miami being at home. Their toughest ACC game on the road is NC State. Again, this is a very favorable schedule in Year 1 of Fran Brown.
