Auburn-Oregon set for 2019 opener, 9 years after BCS meeting
ARLINGTON, TX - Auburn and Oregon will open the 2019 season at the home of the Dallas Cowboys, nine seasons after meeting in the BCS national championship game.
The matchup on Aug. 31, 2019, was announced Tuesday. It is part of a series of Labor Day weekend season openers at the home of the NFL's Cowboys.
Auburn beat Oregon 22-19 in the BCS title game in Glendale, Arizona, to end the 2010 season. Oregon lost to Ohio State in the first College Football Playoff title game last January at AT&T Stadium, where the Ducks also dropped their 2011 opener to LSU.
Alabama plays this year's opener against Wisconsin, and takes on Southern California there in 2016. Florida meets Michigan in the 2017 opener, and LSU plays Miami in 2018.
