Phil Steele, one of the best college football analysts in the country, released his 2018 strength of schedule rankings on Thursday.

We told you yesterday about Alabama's 2018 schedule. It's one of the easiest in the country.

Among the top programs, though, it is not the easiest. Ohio State's actually is.

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:

It doesn't look that easy. The road trips to Penn State and Michigan State should be tough. Home games against Michigan and Nebraska aren't easy.

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