Alabama and West Virginia open the 2014 football season in the second of two Chick-fil-A Kickoff Games in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, Aug. 30. The game is set for 3:30pm ET on ABC and ESPN2 (reverse mirror).
Alabama will be making their second consecutive appearance in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game and fourth overall. The Crimson Tide ran their record in the game to 3-0 after defeating Virginia Tech 35-10 last season.
In their first two Chick-fil-A games, Alabama defeated Clemson 34-10 (2008) and Virginia Tech 34-24 (2009).
West Virginia will be making the first appearance for a Big 12 team in the kickoff game in Atlanta. The Mountaineers are coming off a disappointing 2013 season in which they finished 4-8 overall and 2-7 in the conference.
Next season, the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game will feature the Auburn Tigers taking on the Louisville Cardinals. Several teams have been rumored for games after 2015, including Florida State, but no official announcements have been made.
