Auburn’s 2017 football schedule alternates home and away games for about the first half of the season. The Tigers then play three consecutive road games before finishing the regular season with three consecutive games at home.
Update: We now know tentative dates for the All Auburn All Orange, True Blue and Military Appreciation Games.
Auburn’s 2017 A-Day Game will be on Saturday April 8th at 1:00 PM CT, and will be televised on the SEC Network.

The (rankings) above refer to a composite preseason Top 25 posted by SB Nation.
Speaking of 2017 forecasts, let’s look at what some of them expect from Auburn.
The composite ranking referenced above has Auburn at 13. The lowest projection figuring into that composite is from CBS, who has us at 18. Their snippet on Auburn says basically nothing.
The addition of Baylor transfer Jarrett Stidham makes Gus Malzahn’s spread power run attack lethal. If holes can be filled on the defensive line, the Tigers could be back to contending in the SEC West.
My favorite way-too-early-2017-Top-25 Auburn snippet comes from Paul Myerberg at USA Today.
This is the most intriguing team in the SEC and perhaps in all of college football. Auburn is often hit or miss, but the addition of Baylor transfer Jarrett Stidham should kick the Tigers’ offense into a different gear. But will that be enough?
Intrigue. Everybody likes intrigue, right? If you’re reading this post, you likely know something that most folks—most of the time—refuse to admit.
Auburn is almost always the most intriguing team in all of college football.
In good times and bad, Auburn rarely lacks intrigue. From the Kick 6 to kicking 6 field goals; whether we’re hosing down dawgs, or a burning Oak, intrigue is the first ingredient in every cake we bake.
So bring on 2017. If you’ve ever before visited Heart of Auburn, you know the expectation here is always the same—win every single game. No one else—or mostly no one else—will be looking for Auburn to be that good. But, neither were they in 2010, or 2004 or 1993.
And those years all had something that even a guy like Myerberg can see is in play in 2017—intrigue. War Eagle!
