Teams across the country are turning their attention to their week one opponents as college football officially begins this weekend.

Auburn-Oregon, Utah-BYU and FSU-Boise State are several of the week one games most of the nation will tune in to see. But according to FAU tight end Harrison Bryant, Ohio State should garner some spotlight.

As both teams prepare for a week one clash in Columbus, interview questions revolve around the matchup. Bryant has high praise for the Buckeyes, saying they're "probably the best team he's played in his life." (via Jake Elman)

Considering FAU played Oklahoma in 2018 — which resulted in a 63-14 loss for the Owls — Bryant's comments speak to the elite squad Ohio State will field in 2019.

FAU quarterback Chris Robinson echoed Bryant's remarks in a later interview.

“We played a good team in Oklahoma last year," Robinson said, via Jake Elman. "But the players that Ohio State has, they’re unbelievable."

If Bryant and Elman's words hold true, this game could get ugly fast.

Ohio State put up 77 points in a beat-down of Oregon State in their season opener last year. Though, they did struggle on the defensive side of the ball allowing 31 points to the Beavers.

Saturday's game between FAU and Ohio State will be Ryan Day's first season opener as head coach of the program.
