Urban Meyer is high on LSU heading into the 2023 season

Recent NFL tenure notwithstanding, Urban Meyer knows what it takes to win at a high level.

The former Florida and Ohio State coach won three national titles during his college coaching career, and he sees Brian Kelly’s team as one that could be of that caliber.

On a recent episode of “Urban’s Take with Tim May,” Meyer picked the Tigers to beat Florida State in Week 1, and he seems to be entertaining picking LSU to make the College Football Playoff.

“We’re gonna pick our final four on Big Noon this week,” he said, per On3. “I’m not quite finished with it. I keep watching film this week and reading up on some of the teams. But LSU, they’ve got a fine coach in Brian Kelly. I coached against LSU. I always tell people, ‘They just look different.’

“They’re so talented and that hasn’t stopped,” he said. “NFL player ratio, they’re right at the top right now. So that’s gonna be a very talented team. I pick LSU in this game.”

LSU hopes it has a CFP ceiling in 2023, and that begins with a matchup against a top-10 opponent in Florida State.
