Gametime announced for Clemson-Auburn

CLEMSON, S.C. — ESPN announced on Tuesday that the Clemson at Auburn football game on Saturday, September 3 will start at 9 p.m. ET (8 p.m. CT). The game will be televised on ESPN and will be preceded on the network by the Georgia vs. North Carolina game.

The 9 p.m. eastern start will be the latest for a Clemson season opener since the 1982 season when the Tigers opened as defending National Champions at Georgia in a game that had a 9:10 p.m. ET kickoff. That game was played on Monday, September 6.

This will be the 50th meeting in the series between Clemson and Auburn. The Auburn Tigers have a 34-13-2 lead that dates to 1899, but Clemson has won each of the last two meetings, 38-24 at Clemson in 2011 and 26-19 in Atlanta in 2012. The two meetings prior to that were Auburn wins decided in overtime.

This will be Clemson’s first trip to Auburn since 2010 when the home Tigers won 27-24 in overtime. Auburn went on to post a perfect season and win the National Championship. Clemson was the only team to play Auburn on even terms through the first 60 minutes of a game that year.

This will be the fourth season Dabo Swinney’s Tigers have started the season with a game against an SEC opponent. In addition to the 2012 season opener against Auburn in the Georgia Dome, Clemson opened the 2013 and 2014 seasons against Georgia.
