How much hype do you really need for an Alabama-Florida State game? A game that opens the college football season on Saturday September 2 in prime time — 8 pm. EST — and on national TV on ABC? And, it’s being played at the brand new Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, which will serve as the home of the Atlanta Falcons.
It’s a game that some have already labeled the greatest college football opening game ever since it features two title contenders in No. 1 Alabama and No. 3 Florida State.
How much hype does this need?
Lots. And it will get it starting with this video Thursday. Just a little something to wet your appetite.
