The Alabama Crimson Tide and Florida State Seminoles meet in a rare match-up to open the 2017 college football season on Sept. 2 at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Alabama opens the season at No. 1 in the preseason poll. They reached the national championship last year before losing to Clemson.
Florida State was ranked No. 3 in the preseason poll behind Alabama and Ohio State. The Seminoles are coming off a 10–3 season that ended with a 33–32 victory over Michigan in the Orange Bowl.
ESPN's College GameDay will be at the Alabama vs. Florida State game to kick off the season.
