The game is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 31, and is a rematch of the 2011 BCS title game in which the Tigers kicked a late field goal to defeat the Ducks, 22-19, and take home the national championship.

It will be the 11th game in the AdvoCare Classic series and the first time Auburn has played in AT&T Stadium. Oregon played its first game of the series when it opened the 2011 season against LSU then returned to AT&T Stadium in January for the national championship game against Ohio State.
