Auburn has known who it will play next season for some time now.
But, finally, the dates for next season are set as Auburn’s 2019 football schedule, released on Tuesday by the Southeastern Conference.
Auburn will open the 2019 campaign in Dallas against Oregon on Aug. 31. This will be the first time Auburn has opened the season in August since 2014. Auburn and Oregon have not met since Auburn beat the Ducks to win the National Championship in the 2010 season. Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn was Auburn’s offensive coordinator during the 2010 championship game.
After Oregon, Auburn will welcome two Group of 5 programs in Tulane and Kent State to Jordan-Hare. Following a two-game home stand, Auburn opens SEC play on Sept. 21 at Texas A&M. A home game vs. Mississippi State comes in the last weekend of September.
Auburn will not play a home game in the month of October, but it won’t travel outside of Jordan-Hare in November. Auburn will travel to Florida on October 5. This is the first time the Gators and Tigers have met since 2011, and the first time Auburn has traveled to Gainesville since 2007.
Auburn will have its first bye week after Florida before traveling to Arkansas and LSU. Auburn will be looking for its first victory at LSU this century. Auburn will return home to host Ole Miss on Nov. 2 followed by another bye week.
Auburn will host rivals Georgia and Alabama to end the season with in-state FCS Samford sandwiched between them.
