The Auburn Tigers have added the Alabama State Hornets to their 2021 football schedule, two two schools announced on Friday.
Auburn will host Alabama State at Jordan-Hare Stadium on Nov. 20, 2021. The game will be the second meeting between the two schools. Auburn and Alabama State are also slated to meet on Nov. 17, 2018, which was announced last August.
Alabama State is a member of the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) in the Football Championship Subdivision. The Hornets finished the 2015 season 6-5 overall and 5-4 in conference play.
Auburn now has three non-conference games scheduled for the 2021 season. The Tigers are also set to travel to face California on Sept. 18 and host Georgia State on Sept. 25.
The Tigers now have four future games slated against FCS opponents — Alabama A&M (2016), Mercer (2017), and Alabama State (2018, 2021).
