No. 11 Auburn vs. Clemson

When: Sept. 1

Where: Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Ga.

Why it's No. 11: Tough season opener between deep south schools from the SEC and ACC in the Chick-fil-A Classic. Auburn is returning to the site of their Chick-Fil-A Bowl win with the majority of its team back coming off an 8-5 season.

Series history: Auburn leads 34-11 (two ties).

Rivalry on scale of 1-100: 70. Even though the schools play in different conferences, Auburn and Clemson have played often off to develop some strong feelings toward each other. The last game between the two schools in 2010 came down to a missed field goal in overtime.
