We're basically three months away from the start of the 2019 college football season, which begins at the end of August.

Who's excited?

We certainly can't wait.

The 2019 college football season should be a thrilling one, with Trevor Lawrence and Tua Tagovailoa leading Clemson and Alabama, respectively, while Justin Fields is taking over at Ohio State.

Jalen Hurts, of course, is now at Oklahoma, while Georgia and Texas are surging back to the top of the college football world, too.

Which college football program will have the best offense in 2019?

Bleacher Report believes it's Oklahoma:

1. Oklahoma Sooners

Oklahoma didn't just lead the nation in yards per play last season. It blew everyone else out of the water. Same goes for the 2017 season. A lot of that was the supreme skills of eventual No. 1 picks Kyler Murray and Baker Mayfield, but the brilliant offensive mind of Lincoln Riley and the laughably bad defenses in the Big 12 were also key elements of that offensive dominance. With those latter two factors and a ton of proven talent still on Oklahoma's side, it should continue to move down the field at will.

It feels weird to not have Clemson, led by future No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence, at No. 1 here, but it's tough to argue against the success of Lincoln Riley's Sooners in recent years.

OU has won the last two Heisman Trophies, after all. Can Hurts make it three in a row this fall?
