College Football Hall of Fame opens in Atlanta

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. -  ATLANTA (AP) -- The new College Football Hall of Fame has opened in downtown Atlanta, with the hopes of bringing in some 500,000 visitors a year.

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed kicked off Saturday's opening with the blow of a whistle and fans began pouring into the three-story facility located not far from the Georgia Dome and Centennial Olympic Park.

Upon entering, fans encounter a giant wall of 768 helmets -- one for every program at every level in the nation. The high-tech hall features an interactive experience that begins when a guest registers for a smart pass and selects a favorite school.
