Auburn schedules non-conference opponent for 2018, 2020
Auburn announced games with Southern Miss for 2018 and 2020 on Thursday.
Both games will be played at Jordan-Hare Stadium according to AuburnTigers.com’s Charles Goldberg.
“I’m excited to announce the renewal of our long series with Southern Miss,” Auburn Director of Athletics Jay Jacobs said. “I remember kicking off our 1983 SEC Championship season against the Golden Eagles. It’s fitting to announce these games one month before we each have a player enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Auburn’s Kevin Greene, and USM’s Brett Favre. I know Auburn people will enjoy welcoming the Golden Eagles back to Jordan-Hare in 2018 and 2020.”
AU and Southern Miss have played 22 times, with the last meeting coming in 2008, a 27-13 Tigers victory. The first game will be held on on Sept. 29, 2018. The 2020 game will be take place Sept. 26.
