"I don't even think you can even quantify how tough it is," Reese said. "The polls are crazy, too, with a lot of ups and downs. You add Syracuse and Notre Dame, coming in as two of the top teams, and then Boston College is having a great season too, so they've jumped up. Look at our schedule, and it makes every game tough. The moment you step out on the field, you know you're going to be in for tough competition and it's just extra special."
