Florida State vs. Alabama, Sept. 2: Alabama and Florida State will open the 2017 season in the first college football game at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The winner of this game will likely be back in Atlanta for the College Football Playoff National Championship. FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher served as offensive coordinator under Alabama head coach Nick Saban at Louisiana State. Both teams have recently won national championships (Alabama in 2015 and FSU in 2013). Fisher's 78 wins since succeeding Bobby Bowden in 2010 are second only to Saban's 86. The Seminoles won the last meeting between the schools -- 21-14 in 2007. Fisher was in his first season as offensive coordinator at FSU that season, while Saban was in his first season at Alabama.
