Auburn football announced Wednesday that its homecoming game for the 2020 season will be on Sept. 26. against Southern Miss. The game will be the 24th all-time meeting between the Tigers and Golden Eagles.
Southern Miss was Auburn’s homecoming game two seasons ago on Sept. 29, 2018.
With 4:27 remaining in the second quarter, the game underwent a lightning delay that lasted two and a half hours. Auburn went on to win 24-13. The last time a Tiger team lost to Southern Miss was on Oct. 5, 1991, in a 10-9 defeat.
The matchup will mark the first game back in Jordan-Hare Stadium for Auburn following a game against North Carolina in Atlanta in Week 2 and a road trip to Oxford to play Ole Miss in Week 3.
