The road for the defending national champions will start in Atlanta versus the Virginia Tech Hokies. The Tide will take on the Hokies in the Chick-fil-a kickoff game at 4:30 p.m. in the Georgia Dome on ESPN.
The Hokies return nine starters from a defense that ranked 18th in the nation in total defense last season. Virginia Tech will have returning quarterback Logan Thomas, but Thomas and the rest of the offense struggled most of last season. Things are not looking up for this season after Thomas threw three interceptions in the Spring game.
If the Tide gets past the Hokies they will have another difficult challenge in week three.
The Tide will try to revenge last years loss as they head to College Station to take on the Johnny "Football" and Texas A&M.
