Auburn agrees to play Alabama State in football

Earlier this week, Alabama State’s football program announced the revival of a series with its fiercest rival, Tuskegee. The team announced the introduction of a series with a big-time in-state foe on Saturday. Alabama State will play at Auburn in 2018, the school announced.

“We are pleased to announce our future football matchup with Auburn,” Interim Athletic Director Melvin Hines said in a statement. “The Alabama State football brand continues to grow and expand where we are able to schedule games of this magnitude. We look forward to the contest in 2018.”

The game will take place on Nov. 17, 2018. Auburn, unlike its rival Alabama, has committed to playing all five FCS opponents in the state.
