Also, next season features the move of the Auburn game from its traditional November date. The Bulldogs will play host to the Tigers on Oct. 10. The teams haven’t played a game before November since Oct. 24, 1936 — and most years since they have played in mid-November.
The Bulldogs will open next season in a Chick-fil-A Kickoff game on Labor Day night against Virginia. The Bulldogs then play their home opener against East Tennessee State on Sept. 12, before heading to Tuscaloosa the following weekend.
