Only one team is scheduled to play both Clemson and Alabama in 2016
As the saying goes, if you want to be the best, you have to beat the best. Auburn will have its shot to accomplish that lofty goal next season, as the Tigers are the only team scheduled to play both Alabama and Clemson during the regular season in 2016.
Auburn opens the season Sept. 3 in Jordan-Hare against the defending ACC Champions and will close out the regular season on the road Nov. 26 in Tuscaloosa against the defending national champions.
When you take in to account the fact Alabama and Clemson currently have the best odds to win the 2016 national title, Auburn will certainly have their hands full during the bookends of the schedule. However the schedule news isn't all bad, as the Tigers first five games are at home and six of the first seven games in total at Jordan-Hare.
