Report: Auburn schedules 2020 season opener against Alcorn State

The Auburn Tigers have added the Alcorn State Braves to their 2020 football schedule, FBSchedules.com has learned.

A copy of the game contract was obtained from Alcorn State University via a state public records request.

Auburn will host Alcorn State at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Alabama, on Sept. 5, 2020. The Tigers will pay the Braves a $475,000 guarantee for the season-opening game, according to the copy of the contract.

The game contract also stipulates that Alcorn State’s band, known as the “Sounds of Dyn-O-mite” (SOD), will be provided with up to 419 tickets should they attend.

The 2020 matchup between Auburn and Alcorn State will mark the first-ever meeting between the two schools on the gridiron.

Alcorn State, located in Lorman, Mississippi, is a historically black institution and the first black land-grant college established in the United States. The Braves compete in the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS).

Auburn was previously scheduled to host the Alabama A&M Bulldogs in 2020, but A&M later scheduled a game at Mississippi State instead. It’s currently unknown whether the Auburn-Alabama A&M game will be rescheduled to a later season or canceled altogether.

In Week 2 of the 2020 season (Saturday, Sept. 12), Auburn is slated to take on the North Carolina Tar Heels in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The remainder of Auburn’s 2020 non-conference schedule includes home contests against the Southern Miss Golden Eagles on Sept. 26 and the UMass Minutemen on Nov. 14.

In SEC play in 2020, Auburn is scheduled to host Arkansas, Kentucky, LSU, and Texas A&M and will play at Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi State, and Ole Miss.

Auburn is scheduled to open the 2019 season on Saturday, Aug. 31 against the Oregon Ducks in the AdvoCare Classic at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Alcorn State opens their schedule on the same date on the road against the Southern Miss Golden Eagles.

Good idea to break in our new coach with an easy W

Wish we would’ve continued to keep these games in-state

“One of the best team in their league. A lot of NFL players have played there. No doubt we will have to play fast and physical. We will be a two back, run first, power team that uses pace to get a rhythm. We will take some shots. Disguise with some orbit motion, some jet sweeps, throw a few screens.”

I’ll echo what others have said: The SECW is ridiculous and adding toss ups hurts us. Especially early

Hopefully we add yet another reason for North Carolina to hate us.

True. I hope we win every game.
However, 49 million is a salary that buys criticism of pitiful results.

Also the offense that took us to Birmingham for a bowl game.

Also the offense that lost to a putrid Tennessee at home last year:

Also the offense that has lost every game to the shrimp boat captain because can’t hold a lead with “hurry up run up the middle” for the 15th time in a row.

Also the offense that has been held scoreless after the first quarter by UGA in 2014, 2015,2016,2018.

Also the offense that gave us the “pirouetting” Chandler Cox throwing to a double covered WR to the boundary against Alabama.

Also the offense that could not score a TD at home against MSU in 2015.

And who can forget the tremendous performance versus Clemson in 2016 and 2017.
