SEC season is gradually sneaking up on us, Texas Longhorns fans.

Greg McElroy, a former championship-winning Alabama quarterback, thinks Texas is ready.

“You look at their schedule too? I am curious,” said McElroy, per On3. “I think Texas is well equipped to make the jump to the SEC – I do. But I do think that the challenges that they’ll have playing an SEC schedule are going to be significant. For instance, you play at Michigan in the non-conference. Colorado State, UTSA, and UL-Monroe. That’s your non-conference.”

He added, “I think it’s a really tricky schedule. I didn’t even mention the roadtrip to Texas A&M there in the final of the regular season.”
