Chick-fil-A Kickoff Games start college football this weekend

New, comments

Chick-fil-A will be the brand name of the opening college football games this weekend, with two games in Atlanta on Friday and Saturday. Tennessee will play North Carolina State on Friday, and Auburn will play Clemson on Saturday. Campus Pride has started an online petition asking sponsors and participants in these games to withdraw their support for these games and the Chick-fil-A Bowl later this year. You can also see Campus Pride's "Five simple facts about Chick-fil-A."

I'm so curious to see the broadcast of these games. Will athletes and coaches be forced to wear the Chick-fil-A logo during the games? How many times will "Chick-fil-A" be mentioned during the broadcast? To me, the celebration of the Chick-fil-A symbol is the big issue here; I'm hoping the logo won't be plastered on the participants, at the very least.
