  • Early lines are being posted for college football games in the 2023 season
  • Notre Dame is a 19.5-point favorite over Navy in the Aug. 26 season opener in Dublin
  • Georgia is expected to begin the season ranked #1 following back-to-back CFP championships

Because it’s never too early to think about college football, lines have started dropping for selected games in the 2023 season.

That includes Notre Dame being installed as a 19.5-point favorite over Navy on Aug. 26 in Week 0. The Fighting Irish and Midshipmen will meet in Dublin.

Notre Dame had a 9-4 record last season in Marcus Freeman’s first season as coach. Navy finished 4-8, leading the academy to fire longtime coach Ken Niumatalolo and replace him with defensive coordinator Brian Newberry.

Opening Lines for Top Matchups

Georgia has a schedule that sets up to give the Bulldogs a solid chance to win a third straight CFP title. Georgia is +250 favorites in the National Championship odds.

Georgia’s toughest test in the regular season may come Nov. 18 when it visits Tennessee. The Bulldogs are 7.5-point favorites in a rematch of a game they won 27-13 at home last season.

Georgia lost quarterback Stetson Bennett and defensive tackle Jalen Carter from last year’s team but will still likely be ranked No. 1 in the preseason polls. Joe Milton will likely be Tennessee’s QB after throwing for 251 yards and three touchdowns in the win over Clemson in the Orange Bowl.

Speaking of Clemson, the Tigers are favored by three points over visiting Florida State on Sept. 23 in the college football odds in a game matching what figures to be the ACC’s two best teams.

The Seminoles are poised to potentially dethrone Clemson as conference champions after winning 10 games last season for the first time since 2016. Clemson won last year’s matchup 34-28 in Tallahassee.

In one of college football’s great rivalries, Michigan is a one-point favorite over Ohio State on Nov. 25 after beating the Buckeyes each of the last two seasons, including 45-23 in 2022 in Columbus.

Both should be strong contenders for the Big Ten title again this year, though they will likely be challenged by Penn State.

Out of Line?

Colorado has two games listed among the early lines despite going 1-11 last season. The reason for the interest in the Buffaloes, of course, is that Deion Sanders is taking over as head coach following a successful three-year stint at Jackson State of the FCS.

Coach Prime has brought in a heralded recruiting class along and his son Shedeur, who will be the starting quarterback after transferring from Jackson State. Colorado is likely to face a stern test when it visits TCU on Sept. 2 to open the season.

Though the Horned Frogs have some rebuilding to do after reaching last season’s national championship game, they figure to be a tough matchup for Colorado. The 18.5-point line might be substantial, but it also seems a little light.

Alabama is a 9.5-point road favorite over Texas A&M on Oct. 7. Considering the bad blood with Aggies coach Jimbo Fisher in recent years, look for Nick Saban to have his Crimson Tide ready to roll.

That line will likely be higher by October.

Another line that seems a bit low is Kansas State being favored by six points over host Kansas on Nov. 18. While the Jayhawks were a good story last season after going to a bowl for the first time since 2008, coach Chris Klieman is building the Wildcats into a power.

The line on this matchup will certainly look light eight months from now.
