The Crimson Tide will face the Hurricanes at 2:30 p.m. CT on ABC in Atlanta


TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – ESPN announced Tuesday that Alabama football’s season opener against Miami (Fla.) on September 4 will kick off at 2:30 p.m. CT and be broadcast nationally on ABC.


The Crimson Tide and Hurricanes will square off in the 2021 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game from Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium on the first fall Saturday of the 2021 season. Alabama owns a 14-3 record against Miami, but it is the first meeting between two of college football’s most-storied programs since Alabama’s 34-13 win in the 1993 Sugar Bowl that secured the Tide’s 12th national championship.


Alabama will then open its home slate on September 11 against Mercer. The game time and television network for the home opener has not been determined.
