Alabama vs. West Virginia in 2014 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game.

There's a first time for everything. For Alabama and West Virginia will take place on Aug. 30, 2014, as the two schools will have their first-ever meeting in the Georgia Dome as part of the 2014 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game.

"I believe that playing an opponent that has the national reputation that West Virginia does, one of the top programs in the country, provides a great challenge for our players and gives us something to look forward to in the offseason," coach Nick Saban said in a university release. "We are privileged at the University of Alabama to be a part of what has become a great tradition in college football with first-class organizations like the Chick-fil-A Bowl and the City of Atlanta."

Alabama is 2-0 in its previous trips to Atlanta in the 2008 and 2009 iterations of the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game, beating Clemson and Virginia Tech respectively. The Crimson Tide are scheduled to meet the Hokies in a rematch in the Georgia Dome in 2013.
