The West Virginia Mountaineers will open up the 2014 season in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff game against the Alabama Crimson Tide. How would those two teams potentially match up?

The West Virginia Moutaineers will play in the Chick-Fil-A kickoff game in 2014 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Ga. against the Alabama Crimson Tide. Both teams had been busy trying to finalize the deal to play in the game and according to Mike Casazza of the Charleston Daily Mail, the deal is essentially set.

Alabama has played in a pair of Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Games in both 2008 and 2009, defeating both the Clemson Tigers and the Virginia Tech Hokies. The potential matchup of one of the most hard-nosed teams in college football with Alabama and one of the biggest air attacks with the Mountaineers promises to be an entertaining way to begin the 2014 college football season.
