Alabama has agreed to participate in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff yet again, this time facing “The U” to open 2021:

The 2021 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game will mark the 18th time the Crimson Tide and the Hurricanes have faced each other, but the first meeting since 1993. Alabama holds a 14-3 advantage over Miami all-time. The two teams last met in the 1993 Sugar Bowl to conclude the 1992 season when (2) Alabama handed (1) Miami a 34-13 defeat to win the national championship. That game ended a 29-game Miami winning streak and gave the Crimson Tide its first national championship since 1979.

I think we all remember that 1993 game...

Mark Richt has the Hurricanes’ recruiting on a major upswing, so there should once again be a plethora of NFL talent on the field in the Falcons’ fancy new digs. Should be a good one.

Roll Tide.
