Phil Steele, one of the best college football analysts in the country, released his 2018 strength of schedule rankings just over a week ago.

We've been crushing Alabama for it's schedule for some time. It's one of the easiest in the country.

But there is another top program that actually has an easier schedule, according to Steele. It's Ohio State.

The Buckeyes' 2018 campaign is one of the easiest in the country. It ranks No. 87 in the country.

The only Power 5 programs below Ohio State are Cal, Washington, Wisconsin, Virginia Tech and Oregon.

Here's the full schedule:

Ohio State football's 2018 schedule.

Now, we can't call the schedule easy, because it's not. The road trips to Penn State and Michigan State should be tough. A home game against Michigan won't be easy, especially if Shea Patterson is eligible for the 2018 season. There's also the non-conference game against TCU.

But according to Steele, it's one of the easiest in the country.
