TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA – The details of Florida State’s 2017 football schedule are beginning to take shape.
The ACC will have six football games that will be nationally televised on ESPN or ABC during the first three weeks of the season and, as usual, the Seminoles are heavily featured.
In one of the most highly-anticipated openers in recent college football history, Florida State will begin the season in prime time, when it meets the Alabama Crimson Tide at the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta.
The game is set for an 8 p.m. kickoff and will be nationally televised by ABC.
FSU and Alabama are two of college football’s elite programs over the last decade, and a win for either could jumpstart a run to the College Football Playoff.
The contest will also mark the first meeting between Alabama coach Nick Saban and his former protégé, FSU’s Jimbo Fisher, since Fisher became the Seminoles’ head coach in 2010. (The two met in 2007, when Fisher was the Seminoles’ offensive coordinator. FSU beat Alabama, 21-14, in Jacksonville.)
