The Auburn Tigers have scheduled home-and-home football series with the Baylor Bears and the UCLA Bruins, the schools announced on Thursday.
Auburn will travel to take on Baylor at McLane Stadium in Waco, Texas on Aug. 30, 2025. The following season, the Bears will make the trip to face the Tigers at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Alabama on Sept. 5, 2026.
Auburn and Baylor first met on the gridiron in the 1954 Gator Bowl and last met in 1976 in Auburn. Baylor currently leads the overall series 2-1-1.
“We are excited to announce a home-and-home series with Auburn,” Baylor Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Mack Rhoades said. “This is an exciting opportunity for our student-athletes to compete against a tradition-rich Power 5 opponent and for our fans to enjoy games against a top out-of-conference team.
“One of our goals is to provide a challenging schedule each and every season. Non-conference games like these, in addition to the Big 12’s true round-robin conference schedule, will help us continue to put our teams in position to compete for championships.”
Auburn and UCLA will kick off their home-and-home series at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California on Sept. 4. 2027. The Tigers will then host the Bruins at Jordan-Hare Stadium on Sept. 2, 2028.
The 2027 contest between Auburn and UCLA will mark their first-ever meeting on the gridiron, unless the two teams meet in a bowl or playoff game before then.
