#1 Alabama and #3 Florida State will face off in the Chick-fil-A Kick-Off Classic at Mercedes-Benz Stadium next Saturday when the college football season kicks off. These schools have met just four times previously on the football field, most recently when unranked FSU beat #22 Alabama in 2007. Since then the schools have won 5 combined national titles. Four of those belong to Alabama, but FSU isn’t scared. In fact, president John Thrasher is super confident the Seminoles will win again.
FSU Prez John Thrasher is ready: “I shouldn’t talk too much trash, but I think we’re gonna beat Alabama pretty bad next week. I really do.”

Expect the players and SEC fan boys to talk about this for the next decade.
