The Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game will open the 2014 college football season with not one, but two marquee games in Atlanta's Georgia Dome. The first game will feature Ole Miss and Boise State on Thursday, Aug. 28. The opening game will kick off at 7 p.m. CT and will be televised nationally on ESPN. The second game will pit projected pre-season top-5-ranked Alabama against West Virginia on Saturday, Aug. 30. Read more here.

The Ole Miss football team will open the 2014 season with high expectations after back-to-back bowl victories in head coach Hugh Freeze's first two years. Those expectations will be put to the test in the first game of the season as the Rebels face Boise State for the first time in program history on Aug. 28 at 7 p.m. CT in Atlanta's Georgia Dome as part of the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game. The Rebels closed out the 2013 season with a 25-17 victory over Georgia Tech at the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tennessee, at LP Field. The Broncos ended an 8-5 season in 2013 with a 38-23 loss to Oregon State at the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl.

Between the two games, more than 145,000 fans are expected to be in Atlanta to celebrate the opening of the 2014 season, often billed as the "Daytona 500 of College Football." The Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game boasts an average attendance of 70,205, which is higher than the attendance of 30 bowl games last season. The pair of Chick-fil-A Kickoff Games is also expected to generate nearly $70 million in economic impact for the city. In Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game style, both games will include their own pregame activities, including team tailgates, FanZone presented by Coca-Cola Zero, and the traditional team walks and pep rallies. The Georgia Dome, opened in 1992 as the largest cable-supported domed stadium in the world, is located in downtown Atlanta. The Dome was the host to Super Bowl XXVIII and XXXIV, host of the gymnastics and basketball events for the 1996 Olympic Games and host to the NCAA Men's Final Four three times (2002, 2007 and 2013) and the NCAA Women's Final Four in 2003.
