According to one Alabama beat writer FSU doesn’t stand a chance in the opener.

Nick Saban is 10-0 in home openers as Head Coach of Alabama, the early line has been set by Las Vegas with Alabama being a 5 point 1/2 favorite. This opener is gigantic for college football, it’s on primetime tv, in the new Atlanta Falcons Football Stadium, and the difference will be Alabama’s defense. If Florida State does not get on the board early and Alabama controls the tempo, it will be Goodnight Seminoles in the ATLShowdown. Alabama 35, Florida State 17.

But SBNation’s Ian Boyd thinks FSU chances are much better than the experts might think.
