Game Time Set For Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game Featuring West Virginia vs Alabama

Paul Abell-USA TODAY Sports

Game time is set for the WVU/Alabama tilt in Atlanta to kick off the 2014 season.

We had a hint of it yesterday but today it's official. The Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game featuring our West Virginia Mountaineers taking on the Alabama Crimson Tide will kick off at 3:30 ET. The game will be played in Atlanta in the Georgia Dome and aired on ABC and ESPN2.

Our Mountaineers certainly have their work cut out for them facing the juggernaut that Coach Saban has built with "The Process." The Tide come into this game with a rare two game losing streak, looking to take out some frustration on our boys.

Most of you will recall the last time the Mountaineers faced a seemingly unwinnable challenge in the Georgia Dome. Let's look back to a certain Sugar Bowl from 2005:
