Auburn and Clemson have agreed to play a home-and-home series in 2016 and 2017.

The schools announced the deal Wednesday.

Auburn will play host on Sept. 3, 2016. They’ll meet at Clemson on Sept. 9, 2017.

The two programs have met 49 times in football starting in 1899, with Auburn holding a 34-13-2 advantage. They haven’t met since 2012 when Clemson won the opener 26-19 in Atlanta.

This will mark the seventh time in eight seasons that Clemson will play two Southeastern Conference teams. Clemson plays rival South Carolina to end each season.

Too bad the UGA-Clemson game

Too bad the UGA-Clemson game is not permanent. Next year Clemson has Notre Dame at home, btw.

Yes RM,

even though it wouldn't help us, I'd love to see that game a permanent fixture.

Agreed Bdoug.

National exposure is what the tigers get. A lesson in SEC football is valuable too.
Hows that home-state "rival" game working out for you?
