The Auburn athletic department announced that they have agreed to play Oregon in the 2019 Advocare Classic kickoff game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX.

From the Auburn press release:

“I’m thrilled that Auburn will face Oregon in an epic match-up of two elite programs on a big stage to open the 2019 season,” Auburn Director of Athletics Jay Jacobs said. “I know how much it means to our players to have an opportunity to play in high-profile games; it is one reason they choose to come to Auburn. I’m also happy for the Auburn family, the best fans in college football. They always travel in masses to support our program, so this is a great reward for them as well.”

The meeting will mark the second time the two teams have ever play, the first coming in the 2011 BCS title game, where Cam Newton led Auburn to a 22-19 victory over the Ducks.

As noted in the press release, the game will be the 11th kickoff game to take place at AT&T Stadium. Future games are as follows:
