Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game
In a little less than a decade, the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game (sometimes called the Chick-fil-A Classic) has already drawn in many of college football’s most prestigious programs to the field. Even though the regular season matchups are also loaded with intensity, there is something special about starting the season with a neutral site matchup between two teams hoping to be a major contender. The atmosphere completely speaks for itself thanks to the intensity that builds many hours before game time, providing plenty of incentive for fans to scoop up Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game tickets to get in on the action. This year’s matchup is no exception, as the Duke Blue Devils will face off against Alabama’s Crimson Tide on August 31st.
