The 2019 college football regular season is quickly approaching, with the season now just 100 days away from starting.

The season, of course, will start with some great non-conference games.

ESPN has ranked the best ones.

The season's No. 1 non-conference game?

Notre Dame at Georgia. From ESPN.com:

1. Notre Dame at Georgia, Sept. 21

Two CFP contenders in a rematch of a 2017 classic, won by Georgia. Plus, several Bulldogs players weren't shy about talking trash when the Irish were getting routed by Clemson in the playoff.

Both Notre Dame and Georgia are projected to contend for a national championship in 2019.

The Fighting Irish and the Bulldogs are both likely to be ranked in the top 10 in the preseason polls when the season arrives, too.
