Every once in a while, Power Five teams deserve to be shamed for some of the stuff they do. Today, we’re doing just that by looking at the 12 most embarrassing non-conference games of the season.

We know that some of the Power Five teams we’re picking on do have some good – even great – non-conference games. And we’re aware that some of these games came about because teams were scrambling to fill their schedules. But that in no way absolves anyone. These games are rancid. There’s no excuse for Power Five teams to schedule games against bad FCS teams, “bad” being the operative word.

ACC teams are involved in five games on our list, with the SEC involved in four, the Big 12 two and the Big Ten one.
