The college football season is drawing ever closer - we're now just over a month away from competition.

Heading into the 2019 campaign, ESPN's FPI took at look at the easiest schedules in the country. Before the 2018 season, Wisconsin emerged as the team with the easiest schedule - but that didn't work out too well for the Badgers.

Entering the 2019 season, an ACC program has taken over as the team with the easiest schedule.

The Virginia Tech Hokies face the easiest schedule among Power 5 programs, according to ESPN's Football Power Index.

Virginia Tech misses the major competition from the ACC Atlantic - avoiding Clemson, Florida State and Syracuse.

Check out the Hokies 2019 schedule:

Virginia Tech @ Boston College - August 31

Virginia Tech vs. Old Dominion - September 7

Virginia Tech vs. Furman - September 14

Virginia Tech vs. Duke - September 27

Virginia Tech @ Miami - October 5

Virginia Tech vs. Rhode Island - October 12

Virginia Tech vs. UNC - October 19

Virginia Tech @ Notre Dame - November 2

Virginia Tech vs. Wake Forest - November 9

Virginia Tech @ Georgia Tech - November 16

Virginia Tech vs. Pitt - November 23

Virginia Tech @ Virginia - November 29

The Hokies non-conference schedule should be smooth sailing. Old Dominion, Furman and Rhode Island aren't exactly top competition.

However, college programs are placing an emphasis on winning, rather than paying attention to strength of schedule.
