The SEC finally has its fair share of competent starting quarterbacks, which we will delve into a lot more over the next seven months (hey, it’ll be a nice switch getting to talk about good QB play in the SEC during the season). Today, though, we’re looking at the top quarterbacks SEC teams will face in non-conference play.
There are a lot of them — from Power Five conferences and Group of Five leagues alike.
The reigning Heisman winner is one of them. But we’re betting there are two or three you don’t know much about. Read on, then, to get a quickie look at the 15 best quarterback SEC teams will see in non-conference action.
15. Mike White, Western Kentucky
SEC opponent: at Vanderbilt on November 4.
The skinny: White (6 feet 4, 225 pounds), a senior, threw for 4,363 yards and had 37 TD passes and seven interceptions last season. He is second nationally among returning quarterbacks in yardage and fifth in TD passes. But he lost his top two receivers (they combined for 31 TD receptions) as well as his coach (Jeff Brohm now is coach at Purdue).
