The Auburn Tigers didn’t have the season they anticipated heading into 2018, finishing a disappointing 7-5 in the regular season.
Still, they’re heading to a bowl game, and on Sunday, that bowl destination and opponent was revealed.
On Sunday afternoon, the Tigers discovered they will be heading to Nashville to take on Purdue — a Big Ten squad — at the Music City Bowl:
This is an interesting matchup, as Purdue lost to high-flying Missouri earlier this year in the middle of a slow start. Can the Auburn Tigers send the Boilermakers to a 0-2 record against SEC Tigers this year?
The Music City Bowl kicks off at 1:30 p.m. Eastern time on Dec. 28 and can be seen on ESPN.
