Note: # — US Virgin Islands Paradise Jam; ! — ACC/Big Ten Challenge

There are no real surprises here. Clemson gets back into the ACC/Big Ten Challenge against Rutgers, which was previously announced. This is another winnable home game. Given the ACC's fairly recent move from a 16 to an 18 game conference schedule, Clemson doesn't need to load up on great opponents early on, and they didn't.

Auburn and Arkansas will make their return visits to Clemson after both teams beat Clemson on their home courts last year. Clemson will travel to Columbia to face the Gamecocks and will be looking for their third straight win in the series.

Last season Clemson only had 12 non-conference games, with seven coming at home. This year they were able to get 13 with eight coming in Littlejohn Coliseum. That gives Clemson an advantage in both revenue generation and win total compared to last season.

What are your thoughts on the freshly released non-conference slate?
