The new College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta is slated to open Aug. 23, timed to coincide with two games at the Georgia Dome to begin the college football season: Mississippi vs. Boise State on Aug. 28, followed two days later by Alabama vs. West Virginia. The hall had been in South Bend, Indiana, but was plagued by poor attendance. Five years ago, the National Football Foundation announced a deal to move it to a site near the Georgia Dome and overlooking Centennial Olympic Park.
