After months of speculation, the SEC schedule has officially been released.
Auburn has learned its 2024 fate. The Tigers will welcome Oklahoma to Jordan-Hare Stadium in the Sooners’ initial season in the conference. Auburn will also play its’ two biggest rivals, Alabama and Georgia, as well.
One of the biggest surprises of Auburn’s schedule is the lack of LSU. Auburn and LSU have played every season consecutively since 1992, and have played 57 total times. However, with the SEC getting rid of divisional play beginning in 2024, LSU’s presence will soon fade away.
Following the announcement of the 2024 SEC schedule, the guys at Auburn Wire shared their thoughts on Auburn’s draw. Here’s what Taylor Jones, JD McCarthy, and Daniel Locke have to say about the 2024 SEC schedule release.
Welcoming the new guy
Auburn will welcome Oklahoma to Jordan-Hare Stadium in 2024. How are you feeling about that draw?
TJ: I was hoping to see Texas first since Auburn has not seen them since the early 90s, but hosting Oklahoma will be a great home game, and it will be a solid measuring stick of how much Auburn has improved under Hugh Freeze.
JM: I think having Oklahoma or Texas play every current member of the SEC is one of the best things about the schedule. I predicted Auburn to host Texas but getting Oklahoma is a great draw and Jordan-Hare Stadium should be absolutely electric for the game.
DL: I love the draw. We will get to take on one of the newcomers at home and give them a proper SEC welcome.
See ya later, Gator?
Each of us put Florida on our wishlist, but we didn’t get it. How long do you think it will be before Auburn plays Florida again?
TJ: What a shame. Florida has not played at Jordan-Hare Stadium since 2011, that should never happen in the SEC. Maybe a shift to a nine-game slate will happen in 2025, and the Gators…
