What’s this? A former SEC star is praising a Big Ten team? Well, believe it.
After helping to call Ohio State’s 48-3 win against Tulsa, McElroy had big praise for the Buckeyes, saying they’re the “real deal.”
Really enjoyed my 1st trip to Columbus. @OhioStateFB is the real deal. Didn't play great, still won big. Team is only going to get better

While Alabama’s quarterback, McElroy led the Crimson Tide to a national championship during the 2009 season. He’s now with ESPN‘s SEC Network.
Ohio State has certainly looked impressive through the first two weeks, blowing out both Bowling Green and Tulsa. But it’ll get much tougher this upcoming weekend, as the Buckeyes visit Oklahoma. But if Ohio State keeps it going, maybe more SEC veterans will have faith in the Buckeyes.
