Alabama set to play Miami in 2021 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game

Alabama vs. Miami announced as 2021 Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game

Alabama head coach Nick Saban stands on the podium with the Leather Helmet trophy after beating Florida State in Atlanta on Saturday night.

CORAL GABLES - The 2021 college football season will start with Miami and Alabama. The Tide dominated the game defensively by holding the Seminoles to 40 yards rushing and forcing three turnovers. Prior to that victory, Miami had lost six consecutive bowl games dating back to 2008, and during that time, there were two years where the Hurricanes did not even qualify for a bowl game.

"It's truly special when you can create a dream matchup like this featuring two of the biggest brands in college football", said Peach Bowl, Inc.

Alabama will play Louisville in Orlando next season in a neutral-site game and will face Duke to open the 2019 season in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff game. "This matchup will certainly continue that tradition".

The Miami Hurricanes and Alabama Crimson Tide are finally playing each other in football again.

With the safety position losing veteran Will Blackmon during Saturday's cuts, the group will rely heavily on 26-year-old D.J. Cravens, 22, who was nursing a knee injury, was put on the team's exempt/left squad list later Sunday.

Saban may not be coaching all that much longer, but Richt looks to be in it for the long haul at his alma mater.

"This event always has the feel of a bowl game", Alabama coach Nick Saban said in the statement.

This will be the 18th meeting between the Crimson Tide and the Hurricanes, but it will be the first time in 28 years that they've played. "We are looking forward to the battle". Both teams have great tradition.

Miami will be making its debut in the 2021 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game and will be the ninth ACC team to make such an appearance. The Miami head coach was at Georgia for over a decade before leaving for Miami.

Miami previously played in the now defunct kickoff classic at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. That follows with a 2019 matchup with the Florida Gators at Camping World Stadium.
