Alabama, West Virginia Possible Matchup For 2014 Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game

It is looking like Alabama will once again be kicking off a football season at the Georgia Dome as the Crimson Tide and West Virginia are working out the details to meet in the 2014 season opener.

Nick Saban let the cat out of the bag regarding the game at a Crimson Caravan meeting. The Tide played in the game in 2009 where they defeated Virginia Tech 34-24. They are currently scheduled to play the Hokies again at the Dome in 2013 and apparently are trying to secure the Mountaineers for the 2014 game.

Alabama will try to use the appearance at the Georgia Dome as recruiting leverage to many potential state of Georgia recruits. It's something that no doubt has the attention of the folks in Athens.
