IRVING, Texas – Auburn and Oregon will open the 2019 college football season against each other in the Advocare Classic at AT&T Stadium, announced Tuesday morning.
The announcement continues a decade-long tradition of pitting two of college football's top powers against each other at the Cowboys' stadium, located in Arlington, Texas. The series began in 2009, when Oklahoma kicked off against BYU, and future matchups are scheduled through the next five years.
This season's Advocare Classic will see Alabama and Wisconsin face off on Sept. 5, 2015. Tickets for that game went on sale June 12.
The Crimson Tide also feature in the 2016 matchup, as they are slated to play Southern California in 2016. Florida is slated to face Michigan in the 2017 game, while LSU and Miami are scheduled for the 2018 version.
The 2019 game will be the second-ever meeting between Auburn and Oregon, and the first in the regular season. The only other matchup between the two was the 2010-11 BCS National Championship at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., where the Tigers downed the Ducks, 22-19.
This will be Oregon's third visit to AT&T Stadium, along with the 2011 Advocare Classic against LSU, and this past January's College Football National Championship Game against Ohio State. The 2019 Advocare Classic would mark Auburn's first-ever trip to the stadium.
