Urban Meyer made his 2019 college football analyst debut for FOX on Saturday, taking part in the network's season preview show ahead of Week 0's games.

The former Ohio State head coach turned analyst did a nice job in his first day on set, providing some intriguing coaching insight into the college football pregame show world.

One of Meyer's comments during the show has gone viral, too. Unsurprisingly, it has to do with Jim Harbaugh and Michigan.

Meyer was asked by FOX host Rob Stone if this will finally be "the year" for Harbaugh and the Wolverines.

"Year for what?" Meyer said with a coy smile.

Meyer never lost to Michigan or Harbaugh during his time in Columbus, going 7-0 against his main rival.

The former Ohio State head coach is picking the Buckeyes to win the Big Ten, though he is a fan of the Wolverines' roster.

"They certainly have the players. They have some of the best unknown players in America," Meyer said. "The question is are they going to be able to transition to a spread offense fast enough to not lose a game."

Michigan has had struggles on offense in games against Ohio State, though the Wolverines have brought in former Alabama assistant Josh Gattis to run the offense, and expectations are high heading into 2019.

The Wolverines and the Buckeyes are set to meet in Ann Arbor on Saturday, Nov. 30.
