Rece Davis is already billing Ohio State as the country’s best team. So he’s doubling down.
The ESPN personality and College GameDay host tweeted Saturday afternoon that the Big Ten is the best conference in college football because of its depth.
Conf strength often overdone. Said it for yrs. But I'd put B1G at top right now. Great depth& elite teams too. At least 1 ultra elite: TOSU

Entering Saturday, the Big Ten had three teams in the top 10 and four of the top 11. Ohio State “ultra elite”, according to Davis, and he said earlier this week that the Buckeyes should be No. 1 ahead of Alabama. Davis is an Alabama graduate.
Ohio State rolled over Oklahoma last week and Michigan State topped Notre Dame. Wisconsin is off to a 4-0 start with wins over LSU and the Spartans. Michigan also looks like a national title contender through three weeks.
