Greg McElroy reveals his top 3 early non-conference games this season
Greg McElroy identified 3 marquee matchups at the beginning of the college football season as his top early non-conference games to watch.

LSU against Florida State, Texas at Alabama, and Ohio State at Notre Dame are the choices.
McElroy recalled how LSU was one of the most improved teams last season, and it’s a loaded roster this year. The Seminoles also return plenty of talent, as each team has a returning quarterback, improved offensive line and playmakers all around. He expects LSU and FSU to be ranked in the top 12 entering the season.
As for Alabama, McElroy calls the Crimson Tide the consensus No. 2 team in the SEC, and they face a tall task in the Longhorns.
“Texas has everything that you could possibly want,” he said. “Hopefully Quinn Ewers looks like the guy that was on the field at the beginning of the season last year.”
Ewers looked more confident this spring, and the roster overall is improved, McElroy said, as Texas is expected to the favorite for the Big 12 title.
“Alabama on the other side gotta replace the quarterback spot of course,” he said. “… Good solid playmakers. The defense at all 3 levels should be very, very solid. So a few things they need to iron out for sure, but Alabama in Tuscaloosa hosting the Longhorns should be an incredible matchup.”

Of course UGA is the consensus to SEC team. But, I think 2 and 3 can be flip flopped with LSU and Bama. Both teams are very strong in certain spots, and both have concerns at spots…so I disagree with Bama being the “consensus” number 2 team. Maybe 2A and 2B.
Ohio State at Notre Dame a “Big” game. Let’s get real here the buckeyes will roll over the Irish. But the Texas vs. Alabama game will be a good one. Roll Tide !
Not so sure about OSU whipping ND. It’s the first game of the season. The game will be in South Bend. OSU will be breaking in a new QB and ND has Hartman at QB.
That’s likely to be a better game than you believe.
StlGator…It may be closer than I think but in the end the athletes that play for Ohio State will outshine the Golden-Domers. Sam Hartman is good, very good but the overall talent level favors OSU I believe.
Go Gators Stl !
