The first game will feature N.C. State against Tennessee on Friday, Aug. 31. The second game will pit Auburn against Clemson on Sept. 1.
The N.C. State-Tennessee game will be telecast on ESPNU and the Auburn-Clemson game will be telecast on ABC or ESPN. Game times are yet to be determined.
This marks the first time in college football history where two games of this magnitude have been hosted in the same facility, by the same organizer on consecutive days.
Between the two games, more than 145,000 fans are expected to be in Atlanta to celebrate the opening of the 2012 season and be a part of history. All four teams and their fans will be in Atlanta at the same time, creating a college football celebration of epic proportions. The pair of Chick-fil-A Kickoff Games is expected to generate more than $60 million in economic impact.
Following the 2005 season, Atlanta hosted both the Chick-fil-A Bowl and the Sugar Bowl over four days following the Sugar Bowl's displacement from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. But the games were separated by two full days and run by different organizations. The Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game will host two games of the same magnitude in a 48-hour period, and both will be run by the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
