PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — ESPN announced it will feature the Oregon Ducks and the Auburn Tigers on its popular NCAA Football pregame show, College GameDay.
The game is scheduled at a neutral site, AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, home of the Dallas Cowboys, on August 31, 2019. It is the premier match-up of the opening weekend of NCAA football. Both the Ducks and the Tigers are expected to field strong teams in the 2019 season.
Auburn finished the 2018 season 8-5 overall, but a disappointing 3-5 in the SEC West, while the resurgent Ducks were 9-4 overall, 5-4 in the Pac-12 North. Both teams are expected to be much improved this season. Oregon boasts the sixth-best recruiting class, while Auburn’s 2019 class ranked 12th according to ESPN’s 2019 Football Class Rankings.
The Oregon Ducks kick off fall practice on August 2 at Autzen Stadium.
