The SEC released the 2019 conference schedule today, and so now we have a full and complete picture of what Auburn’s slate will look like for next season.

First off, here’s what we knew beforehand:

  • Auburn opens the season with three straight non-conference games — Oregon on 8/31, Tulane on 9/7, and Kent State on 9/14.
  • Samford is the traditional pre-Thanksgiving Iron Bowl appetizer on 11/23.
  • Florida rotates back on the schedule for the first time in eight seasons. Auburn is set to play the Gators in Gainesville.
  • The home conference opponents are Alabama, Georgia, Ole Miss, and Mississippi State.
  • The road conference opponents are LSU, Arkansas, Texas A&M, and the aforementioned Gators.
  • With Labor Day weekend beginning at the end of August, and the Saturday after Thanksgiving coming on 11/30, every team will get two bye weekends due to there being 14 Saturdays over the course of the season (not counting stupid Week Zero).
  • The Iron Bowl is pretty much guaranteed to be played the Saturday after Thanksgiving (11/30).

So, here’s Auburn’s full 2019 football schedule:

8/31 - Oregon (Arlington, TX) - AT&T Stadium

9/7 - Tulane (Auburn, AL) - Jordan-Hare Stadium

9/14 - Kent State (Auburn, AL) - Jordan-Hare Stadium

9/21 - Texas A&M* (College Station, TX) - Kyle Field

9/28 - Mississippi State* (Auburn, AL) - Jordan-Hare Stadium

10/5 - Florida* (Gainesville, FL) - Ben Hill Griffin Stadium

10/12 - BYE

10/19 - Arkansas* (Fayetteville, AR) - Razorback Stadium

10/26 - LSU* (Baton Rouge, LA) - Tiger Stadium

11/2 - Ole Miss* (Auburn, AL) - Jordan-Hare Stadium

11/9 - BYE

11/16 - Georgia* (Auburn, AL) - Jordan-Hare Stadium

11/23 - Samford (Auburn, AL) - Jordan-Hare Stadium

11/30 - Alabama* (Auburn, AL) - Jordan-Hare Stadium

The odd years always pull in the huge home game finishers with Georgia and Alabama, but this is a heck of a time to hit the road for Auburn football as well.

It’s a streaky schedule — October is all on the road and November is all at home, but with the two byes in there, it could be a lot worse.
