Auburn adds in-state FCS opponent Alabama State to 2021 schedule

AUBURN, Alabama -- Auburn's 2021 schedule took another step toward completion on Friday.

The Tigers scheduled a nonconference game with Alabama State for the 2021 season, ASU announced on its official site on Friday afternoon. The Hornets will face the Tigers on Nov. 20, 2021.

The two in-state schools have never met on the football field but now have two future games scheduled. The Hornets will visit Jordan-Hare Stadium for the first time during the 2018 season when the two teams square off on Nov. 17 that year.

The 2021 meeting now gives Auburn two nonconference games scheduled for that season. The Tigers will also play against California in Berkley, Calif., in 2021 to complete a scheduled home-and-home series with the Bears.

With the scheduled game against the Hornets that season, Auburn has room for two more non-SEC games that year.
