It’s official, Auburn and North Carolina will meet in Atlanta early on during the 2020 season.

Instead of a true Kickoff Classic that comes on the opening weekend of college football season, the Tigers and Tar Heels will meet on September 12th as part of a multi-week “celebration” of college football in Atlanta. Auburn’s game will UNC will be part of a trio at Mercedes-Benz Stadium that includes West Virginia vs Florida State (September 5th) and Georgia vs Virginia (September 7th – Labor Day).
Auburn’s met North Carolina only three times in recent memory: a loss in the 2001 Peach Bowl, and then back-to-back wins against the Heels in 1987-88. If you want to go way back into the vault, Auburn’s third game ever in 1892 was a 64-0 defeat at the hands of the Heels.
Either way, this is the type of non-conference game that works well for Auburn.
