The highly anticipated college football season opener between Alabama and Florida State is already sold out, Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game ticket offices announced on Friday. The Sept. 2 game is being played at Atlanta’s new 75,000-seat Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Based on StubHub ticket prices, Alabama-Florida State upper-deck tickets are ranging between $400 and $500, which means the game is poised to be the second-most-expensive ticket for the 2017 season, with Georgia-Notre Dame tickets running for $545 apiece.
The Week 1 showdown between the powerhouse programs won’t lack any buzz, pitting the nation’s likely top two teams against each other.
“Florida State has a great team and a great program and will probably be No. 1 in the country,” Alabama coach Nick Saban said in May about the Seminoles, even though his Crimson Tide will likely be the preseason No. 1 in most polls.
Bama welcomes another class of five-star freshmen and now has an experienced quarterback and Heisman candidate in Jalen Hurts.
